Introduction to Education Evaluation Services for Architects (EESA)

U.S. architects and foreign-educated licensure candidates without a degree from an accredited program can have their education assessed through Education Evaluation Services for Architects (EESA). Administered by the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB), an EESA evaluation compares your academic transcript(s) to the NCARB Education Standard. The evaluation determines whether your education meets the standards for NCARB certification or reciprocal licensure and identifies any deficiencies.

Terron K. Scott, Ed.D., director of credentialing services, and Nour Alhussaini, manager of special projects, will present an introduction to EESA, who might need EESA, the benefits of EESA, and what kind of materials you should prepare before you begin the process for the EESA on your own.

Presented by: Terron K. Scott, Ed.D. and Nour Alhussaini
