Accessing Your MCLE Records Online

Adding an Approved Activity to Your Online MCLE Roster

If a course that you attended is not listed in your roster, if you are applying for credit, or if you want to verify that a course has been approved, click the Add Activity button to search the database.

Searching for the Course in the MCLE Database

If you know the Activity ID number of the course, follow the procedures below.

  • Input the Activity ID number only in the search screen that comes up.
  • Click the Search button.

If you do not know the Activity ID number, the "Add Approved Activities" page enables you to search for a specific course using key dates and words.  Suggested search strategies are below.  For each strategy, enter the suggested data and click the Search button to display a list of the courses that meet the entered criteria.

  • Try searching by just the month, year, and city only.
  • For A/V courses, do not search by date - use key words from the sponsor name and course title only.
  • If searching by title or sponsor name, and it includes an acronym or abbreviation (such as 'ABA'), also try key words from the full name.
  • Try searching with only a few key words from the sponsor name and course title. 

Adding the Course to Your Roster

If you find the course you are looking for:

  • Click on the course Activity ID number to add it to your roster.
  • For LIVE courses, enter the number of credits earned, if needed and click the "Add Activity" button.
  • For A/V self-study courses indicate the date(s) you took the course, and click the "add activity" button.
  • To cancel adding a course, click the "Return to Member Reporting Period Page" link.

If the course you are searching for is not listed, either alter your search query, or click the appropriate Form 1.

Deleting a Course from Your Roster

Altering the Number of Credits Earned

Certifying Credits for Compliance – Must Submit C2 Form

You are not in compliance with the MCLE reporting requirements until you have submitted your CLE Certification (C2) form and paid any late fees due. 

Even if your online MCLE roster shows that you have met the reporting period credit requirements, you must certify that the activities in the roster are an accurate listing of the credits earned for compliance.

The C2 form is required by the Washington State Supreme Court (APR 11.6(b)). It must be submitted online (from your mywsba.org profile page) or postmarked or delivered to the WSBA by February 1 in the year following the end of your reporting period. See here for more information.

  • Once your C2 is submitted, check back for compliance determination (allow at least 3–4 weeks). The status will be noted in your MCLE online records. If anything else is required, an email will be sent to the email address on file.
  • If your C2 is approved, "MCLE Certification (C2)" will be listed as "Completed." Your new 2014-2016 reporting period will show on your MCLE records.
