SCI-Arc has a commitment to creating a culture that promotes and supports student success. The institution publishes its goals for student achievement as well as the success of students in achieving those goals. This includes providing data on retention and graduation rates, and access to the success rates on architecture licensure examinations. Some of this data is provided to meet state and federal mandates. The data also assists the administration and faculty in identifying outcome areas of success and in making decisions regarding areas that need additional strategies to improve performance.
The federal Student Right-to-Know Act mandates that all institutions disclose their graduation rates of certificate- or degree-seeking, full-time students entering that institution, and to disclose these rates to all students and prospective students. SCI-Arc provides the graduation rates disaggregated by various sub-categories, as determined and defined by the US Department of Education.

Architect Registration Examination (ARE):
Pass rates (by school)
The Architect Registration Examination (ARE) is a multi-division exam used to assess knowledge and skills regarding the practice of architecture. The ARE is designed to assess aspects of architectural practice related to health, safety, and welfare. Specifically, the ARE focuses on areas that affect the integrity, soundness, and health impact of a building, as well as an architect’s responsibilities within firms, such as managing projects and coordinating the work of other professionals.
The current version of the exam, ARE 5.0, is developed by NCARB and features six divisions. Completing ARE 5.0 by passing all six divisions is required by all US jurisdictions as a key step on the path to earning a license.
