Southern Illinois University Carbondale (SIUC) has been given the privilege of starting a New Online Graduate Program, IPAL (Integrated Path to Architectural Licensure).

IPAL is NCARB approved and SIUC is the only school in the State of Illinois that has this graduate architecture program. The new IPAL Master's Program will begin its first semester in Fall 2018.

The online IPAL program is designed so that the very best students will be able 

to finish their AXP hours, receive their Master's Degree and Architectural Registration

in 5 semesters (upon completing all requirements of the degree & ARE). Some of the requirements of the IPAL degree are that the applicant must have at least 2000 AXP hours, a NCARB record file, and a letter of recommendation from their design firm’s Principal. You can learn more about the IPAL Master’s Program from NCARB (, SIUC ( , and/or Michael Brazley, IPAL Coordinator (

If you know of anyone that qualifies for this program and is interested, please steer him or her towards SIUC. The IPAL program begins Fall 2018; we are looking nationwide for students.
