Webinar: Integrated Path to Architecture Licensure (IPAL)


“NewSchool is part of something revolutionary. Licensure not only makes architects more employable more quickly, it gives them freedom to do more diverse and interesting work, moving from one firm to another.”

IPAL Program at NewSchool of Architecture & Design

NewSchool is proud to announce that we are one of only 14 initial schools in the nation that have been accepted by the National Council of Architectural Registration Board (NCARB) to participate in the Integrated Path to Architectural Licensure (IPAL). This initiative provides students an opportunity to complete architectural license requirements for licensure while earning their graduate architecture degree, therefore significantly reducing time to launch their careers as licensed architects.

NewSchool’s IPAL program, a four-year graduate degree program, is launching in the fall of 2016. This rigorous architecture education program combines all requirements for architectural licensure, including Architectural Experience Program (AXP) hours and the Architectural Registration Examination (ARE). The program allows students to begin taking the ARE tests during the second, third and fourth years – two test sections each year. The final (fourth) year of the program will consist of a full-time practicum and final ARE tests. NewSchool is currently accepting applications for the program.
