National Board Examination Program Fee Update

Beginning August 1, 2018, the fee for the National Board Exam (NBE) Arts and Sciences will be $285 for each section. The fee for the full NBE will be $570.  Examination fees have remained static since January 2014, and The Conference has absorbed the increase in administrative expense since that time. The fee change will not affect the pricing for the State Board Examination, or the Laws, Rules, and Regulations Examinations.

The Conference’s membership and American Board of Funeral Service Education (ABFSE) programs were notified of the upcoming fee change during the 114th Annual Meeting of The Conference on March 1, 2018, in New Orleans, LA. As an integral component to funeral service licensure, The Conference’s examination program is continuously reviewed and refined by the Board of Directors. Any questions and/or comments can be directed to the Examination Services Manager at
