ARE Pass Rates
Pass rates on the Architect Registration Exam (ARE) may be found here.
In the United States, most state registration boards require a degree from an accredited professional degree program as a prerequisite for licensure. The National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB), which is the sole agency authorized to accredit U.S. professional degree programs in architecture, recognizes three types of degrees: the Bachelor of Architecture, the Master of Architecture, and the Doctor of Architecture. A program may be granted a 6-year, 3-year, or 2-year term of accreditation, depending on the extent of its conformance with established educational standards.
Doctor of Architecture and Master of Architecture degree programs may consist of a pre-professional undergraduate degree and a professional graduate degree that, when earned sequentially, constitute an accredited professional education. However, the preprofessional degree is not, by itself, recognized as an accredited degree.
New Jersey Institute of Technology, New Jersey School of Architecture offers the following NAAB-accredited degree programs:
B. Arch. (164 undergraduate credits)
M. Arch. (non-pre-professional degree + 102 credits)
