Current law requires an NAAB accredited degree.
However, applicants for examination may apply under O.C.G.A. § 43-4-11(b)(3) if they filed a letter of intent in writing to the Board office prior to July 1, 2004. According to O.C.G.A. § 43-4-11(b)(3), applicants for architect examination in Georgia may qualify to take the examination with a bachelor’s degree in architectural engineering technology from a school or college in this state (Southern Polytechnic State University) approved by the ABET, or any other bachelor’s degree with a substantial concentration in architecture approved by the board from a board approved school or college in this state (Georgia Institute of Technology or Savannah School of Art and Design), and at least six years of practical experience.
After July 1, 2004, all candidates for examination, who did not file a letter of intent with the Board, shall be required to have an NAAB accredited degree in architecture in order to qualify as an examination candidate in Georgia as stated in O.C.G.A. 43-4-11(b)(1).
