Note to home and small business owners:

We appreciate your interest in posting your position on the job board for students in our Architecture program. The opportunities you make available are potentially “win-win;” our students gain meaningful experience while you gain help with your projects.

Please keep in mind, however, that our students are not licensed architects. That title, architect, carries with it very explicit responsibilities and expectations, which are described in California’s Architects Practice Act. For example, as unlicensed individuals our students cannot legally undertake certain types of design projects, including commercial work requiring structural alterations or residential projects greater than two stories or not incorporating standard construction details approved by the jurisdiction. Additionally, it is illegal for our students to use the terms "Architect" or "Architecture" in any document shared between you two. In hiring our students, you are hiring drafters, and any liability for their work should be taken on by you or a licensed contractor, architect or engineer.

If you are unsure whether your project requires the services of an architect or structural engineer, we recommend you consult with your local building department.
