IPAL – Integrated Path to Architectural Licensure

Education | Experience | Education

Florida International University has been accepted to participate in the Integrated Path to Architectural Licensure (IPAL). This initiative provides students the opportunity to complete requirements for licensure while earning their degree. Spearheaded by the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB), the initiative enables accredited programs to incorporate professional experience and examination into curricula. To learn more about IPAL visit www.ncarb.org/IPAL.

The IPAL Program is available as an option only in our Master of Architecture 6-year Track. Students in our 5-6 year M.arch Tracks can apply to this program during their third year. Admission into this program is limited and highly selective. Applications will be assessed based on academic excellence, portfolios and firm interviews. Each IPAL internship is a three-year commitment.
