ARE - Taking early!

My question is: Is it necessary to have completed one's IDP before taking the ARE? A recent graduate from St. Louis told me that she can start taking the exams without having done an internship. Thanks.

Actually, an individual with a NAAB accredited degree can now take the A.R.E. upon graduation in certain states; check the NCARB website for more details - www.ncarb.org.  Of course, the individual cannot be licensed until the fulfill both IDP and the A.R.E.

Visit the following for whichever state and check the answer to question #10

Licensing Board Requirements
10 Does your board allow early eligibility for the Architect Registration Examination (ARE)?

If you check Missouri, the answer is YES.
