Multistate Bar Examination (MBE) Score Transfers

MBE Transfer Policy

All applicants that sit for the bar examination in Pennsylvania must take the entire exam in Pennsylvania in order to have their examination graded. MBE scores may not be transferred from another jurisdiction to Pennsylvania, nor can scores be "grandfathered" from a previous administration of the examination.

However, Pennsylvania will transfer MBE scores earned on the Pennsylvania bar exam to other jurisdictions that accept transfers.

MBE Transfer Process and fees

Those who sat for a PA bar examination and seek to have Pennsylvania transfer their MBE score to another jurisdiction should fill out the online MBE Transfer Request and mail the confirmation to the board office with the appropriate fee. This request typically takes 7 to 10 business days for processing.
