The NBCC Creed

Request a Score Verification Report

The National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC) owns and maintains two examinations that are used for both national certification and state licensure purposes:

  • National Counselor Examination (NCE)
  • National Clinical Mental Health Counseling Examination (NCMHCE)

The Process

Applicants and current or former National Certified Counselors (NCCs) should log in to their Credentialing Gateway account and submit a request through the online store to have examination scores sent to a third party. This score report will also verify your current certification status. Some limitations apply.

If you are not a applicant or current or former NCC, please download a score verification request form from the Center for Credentialing & Education.

The Timeline

Score verification requests are completed in approximately four weeks from the date your payment clears. Missing documents, such as an official transcript showing conferral of your master’s degree, pending ethics matters, or unpaid past-due fees, will delay the processing of your scores.

Express score verifications are also available.
