Checklist to convert a Student Registration or CLI Registration to pursue admission to The Florida Bar (Registration previously filed)

This form is designed to assist you in gathering information, completing the Supplement to Registrant Bar Application (Supplement), and submitting the appropriate forms and information required to convert your student registration or CLI registration in pursuit of admission to The Florida Bar. Click the various links to access information or printer-friendly forms. A Supplement submitted with accurate and complete responses and all required supplemental documents can be processed more expeditiously. Processing will not be initiated on defective applications and an additional defective filing fee may be charged. You must also submit the Re-Examination/Conversion Application to take the General Bar Examination in order to indicate which examination you intend to take. Timely filing of this application is necessary to avoid late filing fees.


If you filed your Registrant Bar Application or CLI Application after July 2017, and used Two Factor Authentication (an app like Authy on your smart device) to register your account with the board when completing your application, you have access to the applicant portal. If you no longer have access to the Two Factor Authenticator (2FA) on your smart device, visit the "Creating an Online Account" section of the board's FAQ page for instructions on how to regain access so that you can file your Supplement through the portal.

Once you begin the conversion process through the portal, you will have 30 days to complete and finalize the Supplement. If you do not finalize your Supplement within 30 days of beginning the process, all of the information entered will be deleted. During the period that your Supplement is in draft stage, any information or amendments entered will not be transmitted to the board. You must complete the Supplement in its entirety and click the “Finalize Supplement” button before the information will be transmitted.


Print this Checklist.
Check each item when completed to ensure that your submission includes all required supplemental documents and information.


It is suggested that you gather this information and have it available when you complete the Supplement.

If you need copies of any paper amendments you provided the Board, you may request an official and complete copy of the application by writing to the address below and submitting the $50.00 copying fee. Do not submit a hard copy of the original application with your Supplement.
Read and review each item of the Registrant Bar Application and previously filed amendments to assure that each response is correct and current.

It is recommended that you copy and paste your number into the "NCBE Number" field on your Examination Application. Therefore, you should have that window open when you are completing the application.

Image of the board's Seal. The central figure on the Seal is a griffin, a universally accepted symbol for vigilance. The griffin is holding the Nordic symbol for fidelity, which comes from Nordic mythology. Beneath the griffin appears the Latin phrase “Clemens iustitiae custodia.” Custodia is the word used for keeping watch in order to protect, and Clementia is used technically for leniency in punishing offenses. Closely translated, this phrase means “Compassionate and vigilant protection of justice.” Expanded, this would mean the watchful protection (or preservation) of justice, a watchful or protective preservation which is compassionate or merciful. The Arabic numerals \"1955\" appear at the bottom of the seal, indicating the year of the creation of the Florida Board of Bar Examiners.Copyright ©2011 - 2024 Florida Board of Bar Examiners.
