MPRE Score Services

The Multistate Professional Responsibility Examination (MPRE) is a 60-question ethics exam related to a lawyer’s professional conduct. It is administered separately from the bar examination. Review MPRE Scores for information about how and when scores are released following an examination.

Use MPRE Score Services to

  • have your score reported to a jurisdiction other than the one you designated when you registered for the MPRE (MPRE Score Report).
  • learn your MPRE score(s) after a score is no longer available in your NCBE Account File Cabinet (MPRE Unofficial Score Transcript).
  • have the machine scoring of your MPRE answer sheet manually rechecked (MPRE Score Verification) (must be requested within two months of your test date).

General Instructions

You cannot submit a request for MPRE score services until after the date of the examination in which the score will be earned. MPRE score services must be requested electronically through the examinee's NCBE Account. 

Maximum Age of MPRE Scores

Each jurisdiction sets its own maximum age policy; however, NCBE performs score services only for MPRE scores earned in 1999 or later. If your score was earned before 1999, check with the jurisdiction to which you are seeking admission for instructions about how to proceed.

Score Services Fees

The fee ($25 per MPRE Score Report, $25 per MPRE Unofficial Score Transcript, $50 per MPRE Score Verification) 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 MPRE Score Services Request Form and may significantly delay the processing of your request. 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 your responsibility to read these instructions carefully before requesting score services and to verify that you have provided the correct information in your request.

Send My Score to a Jurisdiction

MPRE Score Report

NCBE reports MPRE scores to the jurisdiction designated by the examinee when registering for the test. To have your score reported to additional jurisdictions or if you did not designate a jurisdiction when you registered, request an MPRE Score Report. Before requesting a score report, verify that the jurisdiction to which you are applying requires the MPRE and if so, the maximum age of an acceptable score.

To request an MPRE Score Report, log in to your NCBE Account or create an NCBE Account if you do not have one and go to the Score Services section to complete and submit an MPRE Score Services Request. 

In making the request, you will have the option to select your most recent score, your highest score, or a score from a specific MPRE administration, and you will be asked to identify the jurisdiction(s) to which you want that MPRE score reported. If you are unsure which score to select, request an MPRE Unofficial Score Transcript to learn all your scores.

MPRE Score Reports are sent directly to jurisdictions. MPRE Score Reports are not sent to examinees.

Fee

A $25 fee is required for each MPRE Score Report.

Time Frame

Ordinarily, requests for MPRE Score Reports are processed the next business day after receipt of payment. MPRE Score Report requests are not processed until after MPRE scores have been released to examinees in their NCBE Accounts.

Learn My Score(s)

MPRE Unofficial Score Transcript

To learn your score(s) on the MPRE, request an MPRE Unofficial Score Transcript. The transcript will include all the MPRE scores you earned from 1999 to the present. All scores on the MPRE Unofficial Score Transcript are duplicative of score information provided to examinees following the examination; transcripts do not contain any additional information. If you've taken the most recent MPRE, your score remains available in your NCBE Account File Cabinet until the next MPRE. 

The MPRE Unofficial Score Transcript is solely for the examinee's information and cannot be used to report MPRE scores to a jurisdiction.

To request an MPRE Unofficial Score Transcript, log in to your NCBE Account or create an NCBE Account if you do not have one and go to the Score Services section to complete and submit an MPRE Score Services Request.

MPRE Unofficial Score Transcripts are posted to the examinee's NCBE Account File Cabinet.

A $25 fee is required for an MPRE Unofficial Score Transcript

Time Frame

Have My Answer Sheet Rechecked

MPRE Score Verification

To have the machine scoring of your MPRE answer sheet manually rechecked, request an MPRE Score Verification. Score verification requests must be submitted within two months of the original test date. 

To request an MPRE Score Verification, log in to your NCBE Account and go to the File Cabinet section to complete and submit an MPRE Score Verification request.

Score verification results are posted to the examinee's NCBE Account File Cabinet.
