Case History Examination

Digital Case History Submission Information


To submit your portfolio online, please visit our Digital Case History Submission website here. You will find detailed instructions, the Digital Case History Guidelines and the digital case history form you will need for online submission. In order to submit your portfolio online, you must use the digital version of the case history form, developed specifically for the digital site, which you can download here. You must also pay for the exam when you register through the Digital Case History Site.

Portfolios are accepted for review twice a year - May 1 and September 1. Portfolios must be submitted on or before the submission deadline. Late Portfolios will be included in the next cycle, providing eligibility is still current.

Please note: Due to an ever-increasing number of portfolios submitted, the ABE may need to limit the number of submissions accepted for review in any given cycle. Any such limitation on submissions would be dynamic and based exclusively on available examiner resources. Any portfolio that meets the scheduled deadline that cannot be reviewed would be automatically held and reviewed the following cycle, with candidate notification by ABE staff. We recommend not waiting until the deadline to submit your portfolio because the sooner you submit your portfolio, the more likely you are to be included in the cycle for which you are submitting.
