Texas Real Estate Commission Does Not Accept College Courses for the Core Licensing Requirements

Many people still think the Texas Real Estate Commission will grant credit for college courses. This was true in the past, but this was discontinued a long time ago. Currently, all new applicants for a real estate sales person license are required to meet the new licensing requirements

The new requirements stop the decades old practice of receiving credit for real estate or business related college courses. All applicants, even lawyers, must take the same courses.

TREC requires all applicants to first complete six - 30 hour courses for a total of 180 real estate course hours.

These six - 30 hour courses are referred to as QUALIFYING LICENSING courses.
