In order to get a real estate license, you have to take classes. We all know that. In order to get a brokers license, you could use a college degree to waive the two-year experience requirement. We also know that.

What about if you have taken classes at a University overseas? The Department of Real Estate requires:

"Courses must be completed at an institution of higher learning accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges or by a comparable regional accrediting agency recognized by the United States Department of Education, or by a private real estate school which has had its courses approved by the California Real Estate Commissioner."

If you have taken a course or have a degree from overseas the courses "completed through foreign institutions of higher learning must be evaluated by a foreign credentials evaluation service approved by the Department of Real Estate."

Check out the form to use to submit the foreign transcripts here.

Let me know if you have any questions!
