FAQ: What do I do once I have successfully passed the SC state exam?

What do I do once I have successfully passed the SC state exam?

Once you have passed both the state and national portions of the licensing exam, you will need to take the remaining steps necessary so that your license can be issued.

If you haven’t done so already, you will need to get your fingerprints taken before your license application can be approved. Your fingerprints are used to conduct a criminal background check by the State Law Enforcement Division (SLED) and the FBI. The cost of having your fingerprints taken will vary by location, but you will be responsible for paying the fee.

The South Carolina Real Estate Commission will email you with instructions on how to obtain your fingerprints after your exam application for real estate is received by the commission.

If you have not yet completed the 30-hour South Carolina Unit II advanced real estate principles course, you will need to do so. You will need to provide a copy of this certificate of completion with your license application.

When you pass the state exam, you will be provided with an Initial salesperson license application from PSI. You must submit your license application, your certificate of completion for the 30-hour advanced real estate principles course, the $50 license application fee, and a copy of your state exam score report.

Once approved, the South Carolina Real Estate Commission will mail your license to your managing broker and you will then be allowed to practice real estate.

If you have not identified a designated broker by the time you make your application, you will be issued an inactive license. Otherwise, you will be issued an active license upon approval of your application.
