NAAB Substantial Equivalency for B. Architecture Program:
An architecture program seeking substantial equivalency must go through a number of steps:
- Self-study: Programs will prepare a written summary of performance that is based on the NAAB Conditions and Procedures for Accreditation.
- Peer review: Architectural accreditation requires visitations, and reviews to be conducted by a team consisting of educators, practitioners, regulators and students. The NAAB team members will serve on the visiting team that reviews other aspects of the program after the self-study is complete. The peer review entail 3 official NAAB visits to the institution concerned.
Visit one and visit two successfully took place in October 2010 and October 2011 respectively. The program is now looking forward to the third visit which is expected to be scheduled for October 2012.
