Celebrate 5.0’s Birthday With Our ARE Giveaway!

This month, the Architect Registration Examination® (ARE®) 5.0 turns one, and we’re celebrating by giving away free ARE 5.0 divisions! If you transition from ARE 4.0 to ARE 5.0 anytime before November 30, 2017, you could be one of the 24 winners we’ll be selecting this month.

The new version of the exam features six divisions that align to current architectural practice and the updated Architectural Experience Program™ (AXP™), making it easier for candidates to connect test topics to real-world experience. It also does away with vignettes and adds a few new item types. Learn more about the differences between ARE 4.0 and ARE 5.0.

With the June 30, 2018, retirement of ARE 4.0 fast approaching, we’re encouraging candidates to make a plan to finish the exam—whether that means completing the exam in 4.0 or transitioning in 5.0.

Considering making the jump? Do it this month and you could win a free division!

To enter the contest:

  1. Transition from ARE 4.0 to 5.0 before November 30, 2017. This includes candidates who’ve already made the transition! Learn how to transition.

The last four Thursdays in November, we’ll randomly select six winners, who will receive credit for one free ARE 5.0 division. You must have an active NCARB Record to win. See contest rules [PDF].
