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.
