Our Direct Registration Program allows us to manage ARE eligibilities for participating jurisdictions. If you request exam eligibility under a participating board, NCARB will confirm you meet the jurisdiction’s current education and experience requirements before granting you eligibility.

If you are made eligible to test through the Direct Registration Program, all eligibility and exam-related questions should be directed to us at customerservice@ncarb.org. Your NCARB Record and candidate information will not be transmitted to your board until you complete both the ARE and AXP.
