The licensing requirements for Oregon follow a more traditional approach of requiring a professional degree, completion of the Internship Development Program (IDP) and completion of the Architect Registration Exams (ARE), but also require an additional exam.
Candidates can also begin taking the ARE’s before they have completed the Internship Development Program, which helps to save some time.
How to become an Architect in Oregon:
1. Complete a professional degree (B.Arch, M.Arch, D.Arch) from a National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB) accredited University.
2. Completion of Intern Development Program (IDP) as administered by the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB)
3. Successful completion of Architect Registration Exam (ARE) as administered by the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB)
4. Completion of State administered Jurisprudence Exam
Hope this helps!
