*Dates in parentheses indicate future  rst administration of UBE and jurisdiction-speci c component, and future  rst date of acceptance of UBE scores from other jurisdictions. See Chart 10, page 36, for information on admission by transferred UBE score.
† A jurisdiction-speci c component is a separate test, course, or some combination of the two that is administered by a UBE jurisdiction to assess candidate knowledge of jurisdiction-speci c law. The component can be offered live or online. (As this question is not applicable to non-UBE jurisdictions, responses are shown for UBE jurisdictions only.)
‡UBE jurisdictions must accept transferred UBE scores, but each jurisdiction may set its own time limit for accepting UBE score transfers (see Chart 10, page 36). Jurisdictions may accept transferred UBE scores prior to their date of  rst UBE administration. (As this question is not applicable to non-UBE jurisdictions, responses are shown for UBE jurisdictions only.)
**Late  ling fees may apply, with escalating fees in the case of multiple late  ling deadlines.
