What is IPAL?
The CityLabs are approved to participate in the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards’ (NCARB) Integrated Path to Architectural Licensure (IPAL) programs to provide students the opportunity to complete requirements for licensure while earning their degree. Through special arrangements between NCARB and Florida’s Board of Architecture and Interior Design (BOAID), students taking part in the IPAL program will be able to become licensed. We have an IPAL seminar series, 5 courses, 1 credit each, that introduce students to the practice through these themes:
1. Architects and their Collaborators
2. The Construction Site
3. Nature of Professions
4. Ethics / Professional Behavior
5. International Practice
