NAVLE Registration and Scheduling Process

NAVLE website

  1. Determine the state which you will take the NAVLE on-behalf of for purposes of acquiring your veterinary license. Your exam score will be sent directly to this state once your score is released.
    • If you have a good idea of which state you will practice in, then this should be the state you select.
    • If you have no idea of which state you will practice in, then we suggest that you take it on behalf of Indiana.
    • During the licensure process, you can request to have your score transferred to the state you are seeking a license (if it was not the state which you initially selected). The fee per state to transfer your NAVLE fee is $90.00.
