About the ARE® 5.0

The ARE® 5.0 consists of six separate divisions that are designed to follow the progression of the typical architecture project. However, the examinee can take each of these divisions in any order they choose. Once a passing score is received in a division, this starts what is referred to as a "rolling clock." From this point forward, the examinee has five years to pass the other five divisions of the exam. In the event the examinee does not pass the other divisions in the allotted five years, the passing score will expire, and the examinee will be required to retake the division.

To find out if you're eligible to take the ARE 5.0, please contact your state's licensing board.
