N.C. Board of Architecture

The North Carolina Board of Architecture, established by the General Assembly in 1915, is responsible for enforcement of the laws and regulations governing the practice of architecture in the state. A major task is to determine the qualifications of applicants who seek to take the registration examination which is registered nationally.

The Board is composed of seven members appointed by the governor, five of whom are licensed architects appointed for five-year terms. Two of the members of the Board are not licensed architects and represent the interests of the public at large. The public members serve at the pleasure of the governor.

North Carolina requires registered architects to hold a degree in architecture from a college or university where the degree program has been approved by the Board, or professional education equivalents outlined and defined in the Board's Table of Equivalents for Education and Experience. The professional education qualification shall be a National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB) accredited professional degree in architecture.
