C. Board office. S.C. Board of Architectural Examiners Post Office Box 11419 110 Centerview Drive (29210) Columbia, S.C. 29211-1419

2. Contact the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) and have your Council Record transmitted electronically to the Board Office by clicking on "My NCARB” and following  the instructions for record transmittal.  3. Upon review of your Council Record and S.C. application, we will notify you of approval.
If you have any questions regarding reinstatement, please contact Alice DeBorde, Administrative Assistant, at (803) 896-4408 or e-mail  



Pursuant to Section 40-3-270 of the South Carolina Architectural Registration Law, firms engaged in the practice of architecture must register with this Board.

Only an architect practicing in his or her own name (who does not employ another architect) is exempt from this requirement. For example, John Doe, Architect, would not be required to register as a firm. However, John Doe, Architects, or John Doe Associates, or Doe Associates or similar firm names would be required to register as an architectural firm.

To license your company, see firm instructions and applications.
