Take the next step in your real estate career

How to get your real estate license

The Bachelor of Science in Business Administration degree with a Real Estate or Finance-Real Estate Concentration from the CSU College of Business is a major step in your education path toward a real estate career.
To become a licensed realtor in Colorado the following requirements must be met:

  1. Successfully complete approved 168-hour pre-licensing course and proof of completion (a degree from Colorado State University with a concentration in real estate or finance-real estate satisfies this).
  2. Take and pass both national and state portions of the Colorado Real Estate Broker’s exam, which is administered by PSI. This exam consists of an 80-question national portion with a 120-minute time allowance and a 74-question State portion with a 110-minute time allowance. 
  3. Submit fingerprint background check to the Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI). 
  4. Acquire Errors and Omissions (E&O) Insurance
  5. Complete the online license application form with the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies

Education requirements

To sit for the real estate license examination:

  • Obtain proof of completion from the real estate school where you completed your education. A bachelor’s degree or higher from Colorado State University with a concentration in real estate or finance-real estate satisfies this.
  • If you intend on qualifying based on a degree with a major course of study in real estate, obtain an official transcript from the accredited college or university you attended.
  • If you are applying under Colorado’s limited recognition agreements, you must provide a certified license history from each jurisdiction in which you hold a license.
