Credit for Prior Learning

The Texas Real Estate Commission requires that an applicant pass six 30-hour courses as well as the state real estate licensing exam in order to receive a Real Estate Sales Agent License in the state of Texas. The six classes required by TREC are the same ones (RELE 1406, RELE 1200, RELE 1311, RELE 1319, RELE 2301) offered in our Level 1 Certificate of Real Estate and Associate of Applied Arts and Sciences degree at San Antonio College. Once an applicant has been approved by TREC to take the state licensing exam and passes the exam, they will receive their Texas Real Estate Sales Agent License. Having a current sales agent license (or broker license) shows that the applicant has passed the six courses and has the knowledge, skills, and competence to now be called a sales agent. The SLO’s for our Level 1 Certificate of Real Estate and Associate of Applied Arts and Sciences Real Estate Management degree courses match the required competencies tested on the Texas Real Estate Licensing Exam; therefore, a student who has a current Texas Real Estate Sales Agent License (or Broker License) has met the requirements to receive Credit for Prior Learning (CPL) for the six classes in our Level 1 certificate program and the Associate of Applied Arts and Sciences degree. This process is subject to accreditation.

This document approves awarding of credit for the individual courses based on the previously awarded license/certificate; it does not ensure that credit conferred in this manner will be applied to the credit required for an award. No more than 75% of the credit hours for any award (certificate or degree) may be earned from any type of credit for prior learning.
