Frequently Asked Questions

Got more questions about our SC Real Estate Broker course? We’ve got answers.

Per SCREC requirements, you need to be at least 21 years old to obtain an SC Real Estate Broker license.

You’ll need a high school diploma, GED, or the educational equivalent to qualify for the SC Real Estate Broker Course. You must also have three years of “active” experience as a real estate salesperson within the last five years, before attempting to qualify for a broker license.

SCREC recognizes many of your qualifications as a non-resident licensee in another jurisdiction. However, you will still need to pass the South Carolina portion of the real estate examination. If you’re applying as a broker, you’ll also need to have three years of active, licensed sales experience. You must also have been licensed within 6 months of your SC application. Alongside your application for the SC real estate examination, you will need to submit certification(s) of licensure from any jurisdiction where you’ve held a license in the last five years.

Courses are offered in-person, online, and on-demand. Some students prefer to learn in person, with peers and a qualified instructor in the room. Other students prefer to learn via scheduled, digital classes taught by instructors streaming in real time online. We also offer on-demand lessons for students who need more flexibility, allowing you to learn during more convenient hours of your day.

All coursework is designed to help you pass your South Carolina licensing exam and prepare you for a career in real estate brokerage. Topics include local government regulations and agency relationships. Courses are inspired by real-life scenarios you’ll face as a real estate broker in South Carolina.

The South Carolina Real Estate Commission has contracted with PSI to provide exams for real estate licensure through a network of computer examination centers. We recommend registering online for a fast, convenient exam-scheduling experience. If you have any difficulties scheduling your exam, call the PSI help line at (855) 340-3701.

Yes — our agency requires that we receive and verify Social Security numbers prior to issuing a certification for any licensing board.
