Can anyone please tell me about the FPGEE and/or FPGEC score validity?

Do I need to pass my TOEFL-IBT within a specific period of time?

hey btills, i dont believe FPGEE or the certification has an expiration. but you'd want to take your toefl ibt soon coz it takes 3 weeks to receive your toefl scores and another 4 months to receive the certification.
hope this helps.

Hi everyone,

FYI..i sent an email to NABP regarding the expiratin or validity of FPGEE certification,and below is the email i got from them..Hope it would help you answer you inquiries:)

Thank you for your inquiry. Effective immediately there will no longer be a two-year time limit on the length of validity of the last passing score reported to NABP. Additionally, there will no longer be a two-year time limit on the duration of validity of the candidate's last FPGEE score. Please note, although NABP is changing its policy, Educational Testing Service (ETS) will still continue to report scores for two years only.
