§ 120 Re-Examination

  1. Credit for divisions of the Architect Registration Examination (ARE) passed prior to January 1, 2006 shall expire on July 1, 2014 unless all divisions of the ARE have been passed and credited.
  2. Effective January 1, 2006, candidates for the ARE shall receive conditional credit for each division passed and shall be required to retake only those divisions of the ARE previously failed or those divisions passed on or after January 1, 2006 for which the conditional credit has expired. Conditional credit shall remain valid for five years after the date the division was passed for which conditional credit was granted. Conditional credit shall become full credit only if the conditional credit is within its five-year period of validity and the candidate has passed all remaining divisions of the ARE. Candidates who have received full credit for all divisions of the ARE shall be deemed to have passed the ARE.
  3. A candidate who has failed a division of the ARE or who has failed to appear for a scheduled division of the ARE shall not be permitted to take any subsequent division of the ARE unless he or she has reapplied properly to NCARB or its authorized representative for the division(s).
  4. A candidate who has failed a division of the ARE shall not be permitted to reapply to NCARB or its authorized representative for that previously failed division within six (6) months after the date that the candidate last failed the division.
