|ARE Fee to Increase Oct. 1
Summary: The National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) announced in June that it will increase the fees for the Architect Registration Examination® (ARE®) by $40 per division effective October 1, 2009. The increase, which was announced at the NCARB Annual Meeting and Conference in Chicago, is due to recent incidents of exam content disclosure by ARE candidates, they report, noting that the cost to develop and replace the exposed content and handle the administrative and legal costs related to these incidents totals an estimated $1.1 million.
The new rate of $210 per division will take effect on October 1, 2009. All exams scheduled on or after October 1, 2009 will be at the new rate. Prior to October 1, 2009, candidates can schedule future exam appointments through December 31, 2009, at the current rate of $170 per division.
