How to get your license: Landscape architects

Your education and experience will determine the steps you’ll take to get your license.

If you have a degree

If your degree is in field other than landscape architecture, you’ll be required to have additional qualifying experience in landscape architecture under the direct supervision of a licensed landscape architect. To find out more about eligibility requirements go to http://www.clarb.org.

If you don’t have a degree

You’ll need to document 8 years of diversified experience working in landscape architecture, and 6 years of that experience must be under the direct supervision of a licensed landscape architect. Post-secondary education in landscape architecture may count as part of your experience.

If you’re registered or licensed outside of Washington (reciprocity)

If you’re registered or licensed as a landscape architect in another state or territory of the United States, the District of Columbia, or another country you may apply for a license in Washington. However, you must meet Washington’s licensing requirements.
