$10 Increase for ARE Divisions Will Begin July 2005

Washington, DC—After eight years of delivering the computer-based Architect Registration Examination (ARE), NCARB will implement a $10-per-division fee increase, effective July 1, 2005. This represents the first increase in the overall cost of the computerized ARE to candidates since its introduction in 1997. The increase will help defray future exam development expenses and reduces the subsidy currently underwritten by NCARB Certificate Holders.

  • The fee for each ARE division will increase by $10 (U.S. dollars) beginning July 1, 2005.
  • Fees collected before July 1, 2005, are not affected.
  • The fee to reschedule an appointment remains $35 (U.S. dollars).
