SCC’s Real Estate: Prelicense program specifically prepares students to qualify to take the Arizona Real Estate Licensing exam and for a career in real estate. The program consists of REA201 (or REA179 and REA180) and REA290AH.

Beginning in 2019, the Arizona Department of Real Estate has approved online prelicensing education classes. REA201 (or REA179 and REA180) meets the state requirement for 90 hours of prelicense education. In addition to successfully completing the 90 hours, students must also pass a school exam with a score of 75% or higher in order to receive the certificate that allows them to sit for the state licensing exam.

REA290AH is a contract writing class that students must complete prior to working in real estate. Students who successfully complete both REA201 and REA290AH will receive a Real Estate CCL (Certificate of Completion) from the Maricopa County Community College District. Students who complete the program and pass the state licensing exam may buy or sell real estate.
