Licensing PA: About Your College Degree …

I’ve already got a college degree. Why won’t that do?

About Your College Degree ...Pennsylvania law requires specific education – the Real Estate Fundamentals and Real Estate Practice courses – be completed and successfully passed before you can receive a sales person’s license. State law also requires that licensees hold a high school diploma or its equivalent.

You may already have a bachelor’s, master’s or doctorate degree in any subject, but unless you majored in real estate it’s unlikely that education will qualify you to take the state real estate licensing exam.

The exception (hey, what would life be without exceptions?) is if you are a practicing attorney in Pennsylvania. If so, you should read this.
