National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) has announced several updates to its Architect Registration Examination (ARE) policies to protect the health and safety of test-takers amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Here are some updates to the ARE 5.0 testing and rescheduling:
- test centers in the Unites States and Canada are closed starting March 18;
- test-takers can reschedule existing exam appointments for free and rescheduling fee will be waived through the end of April; and
- NCARB is providing a 90-day extension to all test-takers and passing exam scores remain valid for a five-year period, known as the ‘rolling clock,’ which NCARB will automatically extend.
In a press release, NCARB said it will continue to monitor the situation and update its community of architects and emerging professionals.
