Earn your Architecture License!

To practice architecture in the United States, you must earn a license from the regulatory board in the jurisdiction where you want to practice. Each of the 55 U.S. states and territories, or jurisdictions, sets their own requirements for licensure in that jurisdiction, but they all include three core components: education, experience, and examination.

NCARB recommends and encourages national standards for these three areas, which many licensing boards choose to adopt—although others set their own unique qualifications.
