UBE Score Transcript Services
NCBE performs UBE score transcript services on behalf of all jurisdictions that administer the UBE. A list of jurisdictions that administer the UBE can be found on the UBE FAQs page. NCBE offers two types of UBE score transcript services:
- official score transcripts sent to jurisdictions to transfer the examinee’s certified UBE scores; and
- unofficial score transcripts sent to examinees for informational purposes.
All UBE score transcript services requests must be submitted through the examinee’s NCBE account. To create an NCBE account, examinees must submit an online request at www.ncbex.org/ncbe-number.
For Multistate Bar Examination (MBE) score services, please go to the MBE Score Services page. MBE score services for examinees who take the UBE might include the following: (1) transfer of a concurrent MBE score from a UBE jurisdiction to a non-UBE jurisdiction that administers its local examination on Thursday or (2) transfer of a prior MBE score from a UBE jurisdiction to a non-UBE jurisdiction. For Multistate Professional Responsibility Examination (MPRE) score services, please go to the MPRE Score Services page.
Official UBE Score Transcripts: Examinees who would like to have their certified UBE scores transferred to other jurisdictions must submit a request to NCBE for an official score transcript. A list of jurisdictions that accept transferred UBE scores can be found on the UBE FAQs page. All jurisdictions that administer the UBE accept transferred scores. Jurisdictions may begin accepting transferred UBE scores prior to or after their first administration of the UBE. Each jurisdiction sets its own requirements for admission and policies for accepting UBE scores from other jurisdictions. Examinees are strongly advised to consult the jurisdiction directly for the most accurate and current information about applying for admission on the basis of a UBE score earned in another jurisdiction. Contact information for jurisdictions can be found in the Bar Admission Offices Directory on the home page.
Unofficial UBE Score Transcripts: Examinees who would like to learn their scores on the UBE may request an unofficial score transcript. An unofficial transcript is solely for the examinee’s information and cannot be used to transfer UBE scores to a jurisdiction. NOTE: Some UBE jurisdictions directly notify examinees of their scores, and an unofficial transcript might be duplicative of score information already provided to the examinee by the testing jurisdiction. If examinees are unsure of what score information is provided to them in the jurisdiction where they tested, they should check with the jurisdiction before requesting an unofficial transcript from NCBE.
NCBE is not authorized to transfer or release any UBE score information until after the testing jurisdiction has announced its examination results and authorized release of the examinee’s scores.
Ordinarily, UBE transcript requests are processed the next business day after receipt of payment, but no sooner than after the testing jurisdiction has announced its examination results and authorized release of the examinee's scores.
Identifying Examinees' Scores
Examinees must complete all required fields in the UBE Score Transcript Request Form. Additionally, examinees must have provided sufficient biographic information on their MBE answer sheets at the time they tested. NCBE may refuse to provide UBE score transcript services if the examinee's scores cannot be identified with confidence.
A $25 fee is required for each transaction. Each official or unofficial score transcript is considered a separate transaction. This fee may be paid online by credit card (MasterCard or Visa only). Payment by check must be mailed to NCBE with a printout of the confirmation page at the end of the UBE Score Transcript Request Form and may significantly delay the processing of score services. No score services will be performed until credit card information is processed or until a check is received with a printout of the confirmation page. Refunds will not be provided for any reason. It is the examinee’s responsibility to read these instructions carefully before requesting any transcript services and to verify that he or she has provided the correct information in the request.
