ARE Eligibility by Jurisdiction

In June 2007, NCARB’s Member Boards voted to approve an ARE timing resolution granting access to the Architect Registration Examination® (ARE®) prior to the completion of the Architectural Experience Program® (AXP®). Each state board must decide individually if concurrent completion of AXP and ARE will be allowed. The chart below lists the status of implementation plans for individual boards.
