All states have a registration law for architects. Many require a full degree, and from an accredited school of architecture. One is forbidden from "stamping" and signing documents without the full registration. That process involves taking an extensive examination, and meeting other requirements of the law [which may include an internship period]. In many states, one cannot use the work "architect" or even "architectural" in any context without being licensed. Some states also register interior designers but not a great many. I assume the requirements and prohibitions are roughly the same as for architects. There is a lot of controversy about this, as the interior folks do not have the background for complete building design, and so the limits of their practice is in question.
