Introducing NCARB’s New Website

Welcome to the new! Over the past few years, we’ve been working to simplify and streamline our programs and services—and now that effort extends to our website. We’re excited to share the new site with you, and we hope you enjoy our easy-to-follow navigation, mobile responsiveness, and user-friendly content!

Here are a few new features to explore as you use our updated website.

Licensing Requirements Tool

This useful resource features the latest requirements from each of the 54 U.S. architectural licensing boards, broken down by where you are in your career—from earning an initial license to registering your firm. Plus, you can compare requirements across two jurisdictions.

Using the tool’s new map feature, you can select a jurisdiction to view its requirements (highlighted in blue on the left). You can also select a requirement on the left to highlight all of the jurisdictions with a similar requirement.

If you notice an “i" next to a requirement, the jurisdiction may have extra stipulations. To see that information, switch to the “Detail View” for the full list of requirements. Want to compare the requirements across jurisdictions? That’s also an option in the detail view: just select the jurisdictions you’d like to compare from the drop-down menu.

Having trouble navigating the tool? Select the “Instructions” button above the map for a step-by-step walk through.

FAQ Center
