Passing the Architect Registration Examination® (ARE®) is the rite of every candidate's path toward licensure. Don't do it alone! Learn about AIA San Francisco's ARE Pact program and yearlong ARE preparatory classes to help designers obtain the title of licensed architect.

The ARE Pact program, presented by AIASF's Architectural Licensing Committee, offers the perfect incentive to get licensed: take all exams required by NCARB for licensing within 12 months and you will receive a full refund of your $1,000 enrollment deposit. Enrollment in the program includes a peer study group organized by AIASF, a team leader and coach assigned to your group, free admission to class lectures for all six ARE divisions with dinner provided, and much more.
PLEASE NOTE: You must have permission to test from NCARB and the California Architects Board before registering for the ARE Pact; confirmation of eligibility can take 6-8 weeks. Unfortunately, we cannot make exceptions for this rule given the nature of the approval process at NCARB and the CAB
Checks are the only accepted form of payment and must be postmarked by Monday, February 26, 2018. Please make checks payable to "AIA San Francisco" and mail to:

The completion date for the 2018 ARE Pact is March 31, 2019. You are only required to TAKE, not pass, all 6 exams by this date in order to be reimbursed for your $1,000 enrollment deposit. We can’t stress the word “TAKE” enough.
Register online by February 25 for preferred placement; pre-registration will close at 12 pm the day of the event. Please fill out the form completely. You will be assigned a study group based on your answers to the questions in the form—you can request to be assigned to a group with friends or coworkers. Enrollment will be capped at 120 participants.
