FAQ: Does South Carolina offer reciprocity with other states?

Does South Carolina offer reciprocity with other states?

The South Carolina Real Estate Commission offers full reciprocity for Georgia residents who are qualified through written examination within Georgia and who also hold an active real estate license in Georgia.

Georgia licensees must still pay the salesperson license fee of $50, provide a copy of their state ID showing proof of Georgia residency, a copy of their social security card, notarized verification of lawful presence, a certification of licensure history form the Georgia Real Estate Commission, and any other jurisdiction where they have held a license, and a criminal history explanation form, if applicable.

The Commission also recognizes qualifications of other non-resident applicants who have already been licensed in other jurisdictions. Although they may be exempt from having to take the national portion of the exam, these licensees must still take the South Carolina portion of the state real estate licensee exam.

To receive the exemption for a portion of the exam, their exam applications should include applicable certification of licensure from any other jurisdiction where a license was held within the past five years. To qualify, these licensees must have been actively licensed within six months of making your South Carolina application.
