California Supplemental Examination (CSE)
Release of CSE Results
Examination results for the CSE are provided to candidates at examination sites upon completion of their examination.
Candidates who pass the CSE are provided with an Application for Licensure and fee chart along with their passing score letter. Candidates who are unsuccessful receive a score report and a CSE application so they can reapply. Candidates must submit a new application and payment to the Board for each CSE attempt. A candidate cannot schedule or retake the CSE for at least 180 days from the date they last took the examination.
Retaking the CSE
Candidates who are unsuccessful with the CSE must wait a mandatory 180 days before they can retake the exam. This mandatory waiting period allows candidates the necessary preparation time for their future retake. Candidates who reapply within the 180 day waiting period will not receive their eligibility notification or CSE Handbook until the end of the waiting period.
