Professional Exams

The Architectural Registration Exam (ARE) is a multidimensional set of exams meant to test on subjects such as (but not limited to) design, structures, history, professional practice and other technical issues that can vary by state (most notably in the cases of hurricane or seismic components). It can be taken in parts and over a specified timeframe. Information on the specifics can be obtained by contacting the National Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) at www.ncarb.org.


 Practical Experience

The profession has designated the Architectural Experience Program (AXP), with its compartmentalized and quantified requirements, as the experience component of the registration process. Under certain circumstances and limitations, the process may start while in college and continue through to its completion when the skills and experience meet a threshold quantity as certified by a member-in-good-standing of the profession. Information on the process and requirement specifics can be obtained by contacting NCARB as listed above in Professional Exams.


Registration & 
Professional Status

The State of Florida maintains the registration process through the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR) located in Tallahassee. Information on the process of qualifying can be obtained by contacting them at www.myfloridalicense.com.


ArchAttack

Students have the opportunity to participate in this bi-Annual competition on the Boca Raton campus. Professors and guest jurors (professionals from the community and other dignitaries) are invited to participate by serving on the Design Jury. As is customary for architecture projects, all students will present a brief, but comprehensive, summary of the basis on which their design projects were developed, to personally introduce their projects for grading and commentary by professors and guest jurists.

An open invitation is extended to everyone at the College and other interested parties to attend and view the projects.
