And the system asks for your profession, so you selected it accordingly. But in the renewal of SCE membership, the system does not ask again for your course.|
If you have a temporary membership of SCE from the start, your renewal is only possible if you changed your profession from your Iqama from the relevant discipline to SCE or if you provide degree/certificate relevant to your profession.

- Log in to your SCE account by using your ID and password.
- Click on the option “convert temporary to permanent membership.”
- Then select “Add a new request.”
- Upload your relevant degree/certificate that is required for the conversion of this membership.
- Submit your request.
- Your request status will turn to ‘completed’, check it.
- After your request is completed and accepted, it is time to file the renewal of the membership by the process that is mentioned above and get your standard membership of Saudi Council of Engineering.
