EESA

What is an EESA evaluation? Do I need one?

Administered by the NAAB, the Education Evaluation Services for Architects (EESA) compares your academic transcript to the NCARB Education Standard and determines whether your education meets the requirement for licensure or NCARB certification.

You may need an EESA evaluation if you are a candidate for licensure or NCARB certification without a degree from a NAAB-accredited program. Learn more about EESA evaluations.

As a foreign architect, how do I know if I need an EESA evaluation?

If you meet the requirements for the foreign architect path to certification, you will not need an EESA evaluation. If you do not meet these requirements, you may be able to follow the steps for foreign-educated applicants instead.
