Please note that score reports consist of a candidate’s entire examination history. NBEO reserves the ability to delay score release.

Scores reports will be released as follows:

1. To the candidate:
Scores can be viewed online. Scores will not be released over the phone, fax, or email.

2. To the optometric institution:
One score report will be issued, at no charge, to the candidate’s optometric institution if the candidate authorizes release of the scores during registration.

3. To the state board(s):
Upon confirmation of graduation by the institution to NBEO and completion of all Parts, NBEO will release a free cumulative score report to the state board(s) a candidate selects during their registration for Part III. The candidate may update their list at any time before release to the state board(s) by clicking here.


To all online state law exam (OSLE) candidates except Florida, candidates will need to contact their respective state board(s) to find out when their scores will be released by the state board(s). NBEO only administers state law exams. State boards determine the pass/fail cut off score and release scores. A score of an OSLE administered by NBEO must be obtained directly from the state board(s); it will not appear on the NBEO score report.

To all Florida OSLE candidates, the Florida Department of Health sets the pass/fail cutoff score. Florida OSLE scores are only available from our website. Instructions on how to look up a Florida OSLE score are available on the OSLE webpage of our website.
