  • IMPORTANT:  Registration Renewal -   All West Virginia registraions expire on June 30, 2019.  Online renewals are available beginning June 1 using the registrant login on the homepage.  Architects use their four-digit certificate number and the last four digits of their Social Security Numbers to login.  Make sure to update contact information at this time and print your receipt.  Architects who were recently reciprocally registered will also need to renew their registrations in June but will not have to attest to completing 12 HSW hours if this is their first renewal since being registered. Paper renewal forms are still available under the Forms tab. Registrations postmarked or online after June 30th are considered late registrations.
