ARE Pass Rates

ARE Pass Rates

As developed by NCARB, the ARE assesses a candidate’s knowledge, skills, and abilities to provide the various services required in the practice of architecture. It has been adopted for use by all U.S. registration boards and the Canadian provincial architectural associations as the registration examination for all candidates seeking architectural licensing.

NCARB tracks the pass rates for the ARE in two ways—one by division and the other by NAAB-accredited schools of architecture.

You can find ARE 4.0 pass rates through the links below. NCARB is currently collecting data on early ARE 5.0 testers. We'll begin posting ARE 5.0 pass rates by division and by school of architecture in the summer of 2017.
