Reports & Transcripts
Scores will generally be available within 8–10 weeks of the examination date. Occasionally, short delays in score reporting occur because of circumstances that are beyond NBOME’s control.
- Score reports will be available via secure access to the NBOME account in portal.
- A personal email is sent to each candidate who tested in that time period as well as their Dean informing them when their scores have been posted, and alerts are posted to NBOME Facebook and Twitter feeds.
- The score-release calendar shows the date range within which candidates can expect their scores based on the test date.
Note: Students and osteopathic medical school dean’s offices will be able to access and print test results immediately after they become available along with the student’s’ examination history. Up-to-date information about student test-taking activities and test results remain online for accessing and printing at the student’s and osteopathic medical school dean’s convenience.
For those needing a duplicate score report from an examination completed before implementation of electronic score reporting in 2012, please send a written request to:
NBOME Corporate Offices & Conference Center
8765 W. Higgins Rd., Suite 200
Chicago, IL 60631-4174.
Please allow 10 business days for delivery. For questions, contact NBOME Client Services.
Score reports printed from the NBOME’s portal do not take the place of an NBOME-certified transcript.
Information about Candidate Score Confirmation is provided in the COMLEX-USA Bulletin of Information. Further information regarding failing scores is available in the COMLEX-USA Level 2-PE Post-Examination FAQ. Failing candidates should consult with their school for recommended remediation programs. A score confirmation only recalculates the candidate score. The NBOME does not rescore encounters or components by videotape nor review case-specific or general deficiencies with candidates.
NBOME certified transcripts are the only verification acceptable by medical licensing agencies and the Federation Credentials Verification Service (FCVS).
To order a certified transcript, access your account and complete the instructions. If you do not have or are unable to access your account, contact Client Services via email or call 866-479-6828.
Transcript requests will be processed in the order of the date received. The normal processing time is one to two business days from the date of receipt of the request and payment and three to five shipping days using standard USPS mail. Transcripts can be sent by FedEx for an additional fee.
Candidates must complete at least one COMLEX-USA examination for which a score is available in order to process a transcript request. If you request a transcript while a test score is pending, that score will not appear on your transcript.
For Third Parties
- Third parties who wish to request an official transcript must obtain written consent from the osteopathic physician and submit it with an official transcript request form. Download the application form and submit with payment to the NBOME. If you are using FCVS, this option does not apply; contact FCVS directly.
