The North Dakota State Board of Architecture and Landscape Architecture requires completion of all requirements for a record with NCARB or CLARB. This includes requirements for examination, education, work experience and references. Once complete, you would have your record submitted to us requesting that ND be your initial state of registration.

In addition, anyone seeking an architectural license, please complete the Uniform Application HERE and submit a check for $150 to the following address:


ND State Board of Architecture

Anyone seeing a landscape architectural license please complete the Initial Application for Landscape Architecture HERE and submit a check for $150 to the address above.

Once the board receives your NCARB/CLARB transmittal, application and application fee, they will then review your application and if everything is in order, would grant the license.
