Petition Information
Petition Title Amend application deadline for PE examination eligibility
Date Filed 3/10/2021    [Transmittal Sheet]
Petitioner Atticus Sawatzki 
Petitioner's Request

To amend 18VAC10-20-260.A.2 to allow applications for original PE licensure or EIT designation to be received in the Board\'s office no later than 75 days prior to the scheduled examination date (rather than 130 days).

Agency's Plan

The petition will be published on April 12, 2021, in the Register of Regulations for a 30-day public comment period ending May 11, 2021.

The Board will consider the petition and any comment received at its meeting on June 22, 2021.

Comment Period Ended 5/11/2021
Agency Decision Take no action [Transmittal Sheet]    
Response Date 6/23/2021
Agency Decision Summary

At its meeting on June 22, 2021, the Board considered the petitioner’s request and voted to take no action. The Board noted that its current application review process and timeframes provide applicants the opportunity to submit supplemental documentation after the 130-day deadline, up until NCEES exam registration closes. An applicant in the situation described by the petitioner, for instance, would be allowed to register and sit for the PE exam contingent upon receipt of degree verification; the unavailability of official transcripts before the application deadline is not an issue.
