Date of Application and Prior Approval Request Receipt

(1) Applications for Board approval to register for the Landscape Architect Registration Examination (LARE) must be received in the Board’s office as follows:

(a) For candidates with a degree that is accredited by the Landscape Architecture Accreditation Board (LAAB), applications 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); or

(b) For candidates without a degree that is accredited by the Landscape Architecture Accreditation Board (LAAB) and applying based in whole or in part on work experience in lieu of education under OAR 804-010-0010 or 804-010-0020, applications 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

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