    The Architecture Department at KSU is active in facilitating the Architectural Experience Program with students and has a designated NCARB Architect Licensing Advisor focused on helping students achieve their licensing goals. As students work toward obtaining their architecture degree, we encourage students to seek internship opportunities in the many careers in architecture.

    All of NCARB’s  jurisdictions have a professional experience requirement that must be documented and completed before one becomes licensed. NCARB’s Architectural Experience Program (AXP) guides licensure candidates through this process and is the standard accepted means of completing the experience requirements. Refer to NCARB's AXP Guidelines for complete program rules and requirements.
