Are 4.0 Retirement Update
Posted Thursday, March 22

As you know, ARE 4.0 retires on June 30, 2018. In advance of that retirement, NCARB wants to make sure everyone with active eligibilities in ARE 4.0 is ready and in the best position possible for the change coming July 1, 2018.

Anyone currently testing in ARE 4.0 should be aware of the following key points:

• The last day to take an ARE 4.0 division in a test center is June 30, 2018.

• Candidates who have not completed ARE 4.0 by this date will need to complete any remaining divisions in ARE 5.0.

• Your rolling clock will not change if you transition to ARE 5.0.

• Candidates must still complete the test within five years of their first pass—whether through ARE 4.0, ARE 5.0, or a combination of both.

• Prometric test centers fill up fast, so candidates will need to plan ahead when scheduling their remaining divisions in ARE 4.0.

• The ARE retake policy will remain the same.
