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 Education Evaluation Service for Architects (EESA) evaluation. If you do not meet these requirements, you may be able to follow the steps for  foreign-educated applicants instead.
