Direct Registration and Eligibility Programs

The Direct Registration Program

The Direct Registration program is a service provided to Member Boards. For those boards participating in the program, NCARB serves as an intermediary and manages candidate eligibility for candidates who meet NCARB’s current education and experience requirements.

If you are made eligible to test through the Direct Registration program, your NCARB Record and candidate information will not be transmitted to your board until you complete both the ARE and AXP. If you require approval for testing accommodations or have questions about your eligibility, score reporting, or any other exam-related issue, please contact NCARB directly at customerservice@ncarb.org.

Please note: If your jurisdiction participates in Direct Registration, but you do not meet NCARB’s education and experience requirements, you must contact your jurisdiction directly to determine if you may still be made eligible through any alternative methods it may permit. If so, your board will be responsible for managing your eligibility status.
