How to get your license: Landscape architect with accredited degree

We have a new online system available for managing some types of business and professional licenses. We expect some delay in our response time. Thank you for your patience and we apologize for any inconvenience.

Use this process if you have a landscape architect degree that is accredited by the Landscape Architect Accreditation Board (LAAB).

How to apply

  1. Contact the Council of Landscape Architectural Registration Boards (CLARB) (www.clarb.org) to take the Landscape Architect Registration Exam (LARE).

    • If you don’t pass a division of the exam the first time, you may continue to take it until you pass. However, after you pass your first division, you must pass all divisions of the exam within 5 years.
  4. Complete a Landscape Architect Law Summary Review Exam.
  5. Have CLARB transmit your CLARB Council Record to the Board.
