    Kaleb,

    Those were just practice exams, you now have to take the real ones.  There's 12 of them and they're twice as hard as the ones you just took.

    Kidding.

    Congrats!

    It depends on your state.  I'm in Ohio and I literally had to do absolutely nothing.  NCARB and my State Architects Board literally handled it all.  I got an email from NCARB saying I had passed everything and they were notifying the Ohio Board.  I then got a few emails from Ohio saying we got everything from NCARB, we're making sure it's all completed, and then once they did that, i got an email from Ohio saying "Congrats.  You're an architect.  Here's your license number."

    I would recommend going onto your State Board's website and seeing what has to happen.  You could call them as well.

    Congrats on getting through this!!

    Hi David, 

    Would you mind sharing the time frame? When would we expect to receive the approval letter (for NCARB record review) from NCARB after passing ARE and completing AXP? Thanks,

    Meiqian,

    The timeframe also depends on your state, 100%.  Ohio is quick.  I think I went from passing my last to license in hand within 3 weeks.  Many people have been posting on here however with completely opposite experiences - some waiting 3 weeks just to hear from their Board that they received their record.  Ohio apparently has a quick turnaround, not sure why.  

    I didn't get an approval letter from NCARB - it was an email only, and it came within a few days after passing my last exam.  They told me that they would forward everything to Ohio.  Things may be different now with the virus going on, people working from home, less staff, etc.  I got my license back in 2017.
