Date of Application and Prior Approval Request Receipt

(1) Requests for prior approval to register for either Section 1 or 2 of the Landscape Architect Registration Examination (LARE) must be received in the Board’s office no less than 30 days prior to the close of the examination registration period as set by the Council of Landscape Architectural Boards (CLARB).

(2) Applications to register for either Section 3 or 4 of the LARE must be received in the Board's office no less than 45 days prior to the close of the examination registration period as set by CLARB.

(3) The Board Administrator may waive the deadlines in (1) or (2) on a case-by-case basis to accept a candidate’s prior approval request or application closer to CLARB registration deadlines but only upon receipt of a written request from the candidate or CLARB and upon determination by the Board Administrator of extenuating circumstances outside the control of a candidate. Failure of a candidate to be knowledgeable about the need for Board approval or to begin the registration process in a timely manner considering the Board deadlines is an example of a situation that would not constitute extenuating circumstances.
