Rule 20:38:30:01 Architecture.
An applicant for licensure as an architect shall meet the following
(1) A professional degree
in architecture from a program accredited by the National Architectural
Accreditation Board (NAAB);
(2) A professional degree
in architecture from a Canadian university certified by the Canadian
Architectural Certification Board (CACB);
(3) A degree in
architecture satisfying a degree evaluation by Education Evaluation Services
for Architects (EESA) as a part of NCARB's Broadly Experienced Architect (BEA)
certification program; or
(4) A degree in
architecture from a foreign education program that satisfies a foreign degree
evaluation by EESA.
For a degree evaluation by EESA, NCARB
will, upon applicant request, inform the applicant of the type of evaluation
required from EESA. The applicant must ask EESA to send a copy of its completed
evaluation report directly to NCARB. Based upon the report, NCARB will
determine whether the applicant has met the education requirement, or will meet
the requirement when all reported deficiencies have been corrected via
additional course work or testing as prescribed by EESA.
An NCARB certification shall be
accepted by the board as evidence that the education requirement has been met.
