U.S. architects and foreign-educated licensure candidates without a degree from a NAAB-accredited program can have their education assessed through Education Evaluation Services for Architects (EESA).

Administered by the NAAB, an EESA evaluation compares your academic transcript(s) to the NCARB Education Standard. The evaluation determines whether your education meets the standards for initial licensure, NCARB certification or reciprocal licensure, and identifies any deficiencies that must be addressed.
