    Hi Belen, 

    I would check which one of these schools are closer to me, and then contact their School of Architectures' Career Advisor asking them to suggest me a course that can satisfy that deficiency. If they need more information, I'd refer them to the NCARB Education Standards. After their suggestion, I'd submit that course to the NAAB for their approval. And once with their approval, I'd apply for admission as a non-degree student. That's more or less how I did it. And a year later, I've satisfied all my deficiencies. If you need any more help, don't hesitate on contacting me.

    Good luck!
    Guillermo.

    Hi Guillermo, thanks for your kind answer and help. I did get the approval and the non degree seeker for the rest of the deficiencies I had. However, I tried so far 9 courses at different universities like UCF, Valencia College, FIU and UF and none of them have pass the pre-approval. So I was wondering if someone in the community had a class for Building Performance that got it approved recently.
    Thanks again.

    Hi Belen, I  am looking for the same class. So far I did get approval for 1.5 credits out of the 3 credits required. Details below 

    SUS 2028 -ENERGY MODELLING IN BUILDING DESIGN - BOSTON ARCHITECTURAL COLLEGE - 1.5 Credits

    Energy Modeling in Building Design #SUS2028 (the-bac.edu)  

    ILLINOIS INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY also offers the same classes but are a bit more expensive as compared to others.

    Class Schedule Listing (iit.edu)

    Applied Building Energy Modeling - 29494 - CAE 550 - 01  3 credits 

    Applied Building Energy Modeling - 52300 - CAE 550 - 02   3 credits 

    I hope this helps you or anyone who might be looking for these classes.

    Hi Belen,

    I'm going through the same path and have been looking for a course than can fulfil my credits deficiency in building performance but no luck in that, all got denied by the EESA pre approval system.

    I was wondering if you got lucky and got approved for a course?

    Thank you!

    Thank you Victor!

    Unfortunately there are no seats left for one of these courses that you posted, I was wondering if all courses under sustainable design are approved? or do know any other courses that are similar and approved by NCARB? I'm looking for courses that starts from Jan 22 and ends before may, thus with the preapproval form waiting time it's almost impossible to get answers before registration deadline.

    All the courses I sent over to them under sustainability wasn’t approved except that one.You might be able to get approval before the class starts. Reach out to Beverly today. Then you can send it to NCARB for approval.
