The Architects Registration Council of Nigeria (ARCON) was set up in 1969 to regulate the training and practice of the Architectural profession in all its ramifications by the Architects (Registration, Etc.) Act A19 Laws of the Federation of Nigeria 2004.

The ARP is a special one-off-programme designed by ARCON to clear the backlog of persons who have not been deemed eligible for their professional registrations due to the following:

1.    Candidates with both B.Sc./B.Tech /B.E.S. (Arch) and M.Sc./M.Tech/M.E.D (Arch) or their equivalent degrees of unaccredited Architecture programme from Nigerian schools,

2.    Candidates who graduated from Nigerian schools with unaccepted degree nomenclature in Architecture.

In view of the regulatory power conferred on the Council by the Act, applications are invited from graduates of Architecture, who, up until December 31, 2014, fall under any of the categories stated above to be pre-qualified for their professional examinations leading to registration through the ARCON Regularisation Programme October, 2016.

This is a special one-off exercise. Subsequently, the only path to full registration will be through accredited institutions with recognised degree nomenclature.
