Students of the Culverhouse Real Estate Program have a unique opportunity to be eligible to take the Alabama Real Estate Salesperson License exam after completing two real estate courses! Two real estate courses count for the required 60 hour prelicense course.
Students must take and earn a letter grade of C or better in Principles of Real Estate (Fi 331 or Fi 534) AND one of the following courses:
|FI 334 Real Estate Property Management||FI 497 Real Estate Development|
|FI 432 Real Estate Appraisal||FI 535 Real Estate Investment (graduate)|
|FI 436 Real Estate Finance||LGS 407 Real Estate & Personal Property Law|
Students have only 6 months from the date of your last real estate course to take the state exam. If you let this time period lapse, you will have to retake a 60 hour prelicense course in order to sit for the Alabama real estate salesperson exam.

- Be a U.S. citizen, permanent resident alien or legally present in the U.S.;
- Be at least 19 years old;
