Architect Registration Examination (ARE)

After Completion of all Divisions

The National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) notifies the Board within seven to ten days after a candidate has successfully completed all divisions of the ARE. Candidates required to complete the Architectural Experience Program (AXP) must request NCARB transmit their AXP Record to the Board.

Candidates will be mailed a notice of their California Supplemental Examination (CSE) eligibility status once all required documentation has been received and processed by the Board normally within 30 days of receiving the NCARB results. Eligible candidates will be mailed a Notice of Eligibility and an Application for CSE. Those who receive a Notice of Ineligibility will be provided with details on what is required to become eligible for the CSE.

Candidates who have not received a notification within the times indicated may contact the Board to inquire on their status.
