Notice of Change in Architect Registration Examination from Version 3.1 to Version 4.0
Take notice that the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) will launch a new version of the Architect Registration Examination (ARE) in July 2008. The current version, ARE 3.1, will be supplanted. The new version, ARE 4.0, has been reviewed and approved by the New Jersey State Board of Architects. NCARB has determined that all applicants who have not taken any division of ARE 3.1 before May 2008 will be required to take ARE 4.0. There will be a transition period for certain applicants as follows. If an applicant has passed at least one division of ARE 3.1 before May 2008, the applicant will have until June 30, 2009 to pass all of the remaining divisions of ARE 3.1. If an applicant passes all divisions of ARE 3.1 before the one-year overlap expires, the applicant will not have to take any division of ARE 4.0. If an applicant has not passed all divisions of ARE 3.1 before June 30, 2009, then the applicant will be required to take the ARE 4.0 division(s) corresponding to the ARE 3.1 division(s) the applicant has failed. The transition chart may be viewed on the NCARB website at www.ncarb.org/are/40/transitionchartweb.pdf.
