    Hi Christine,

    NCARB's evaluation usually takes about 30 days.  More info on how this works is available here.  If you have any questions about where your record is in that process, you can contact Customer Service at CustomerService@ncarb.org or call us at 202/879-0520.

    Michelle, if AREs have already been evaluated by NCARB, does it still take "about 30 days" for just AXP to be evaluated? b

    Hi Joseph,

    NCARB evaluates your entire record after you've met all the requirements for licensure.  For more detailed info on your record, call Customer Service at 202/879-0520 or contact them via this link.

    Michelle, I contacted NCARB directly for my detailed record. For the benefit of others on this form, can you tell us what the evaluation of our entire record entails?

    Hi Joseph,

    Once a candidate has completed all requirements for licensure, an NCARB Customer Relations Specialist reviews the candidate's full record, confirming that all pieces are in place and that nothing is missing, before the record is transmitted to the candidate's licensing board.  The actual evaluation doesn't take 30 days - but there's typically a queue of candidates awaiting evaluation, so it may take some time to move to the front of the queue.

    Hi Michelle,

     

    I have a question for you. I am a close to finish my AXP program. I have submitted my transcript to the California Architects Board and they approved my education.

    Once I get my AXP completed, how long will it take to begin taking the ARE 5.0?

    Thanks,

     

    Best

     

    Fernando

    Fernando,

    Based on the information NCARB has received from California, candidates can access the ARE after earning five years of education or work experience equivalents.  You can use the Licensing Requirements Tool on NCARB's website to learn more.  If you have questions regarding your specific experience, I encourage you to contact NCARB customer service or the California board directly.

    Michelle,

     

    Does the AXP program complement in any way to the 5 year experience determined by the California Architects Board?

    Or they constitute two different approaches to access the ARE exam?

    Thanks,

     

    Fernando
