Real Estate Salesperson and Brokers Licensing

A real estate salesperson or broker license is generally required to engage in any activity related to buying, selling or leasing real estate on behalf of someone else. Licensing in Kansas is overseen by the Kansas Real Estate Commission. There are two licenses available: salesperson and broker; a salesperson must work under the supervision of a licensed broker.

Note: WSU’s Principles of Real Estate course is not pre-approved to meet the education requirements for a real estate licensing. Many licensed professionals have taken our course, however, and found it very helpful in advancing their careers.

Real Estate Appraisal Licensing

Real estate appraisers in Kansas are licensed and regulated by the Kansas Real Estate Appraisal Board. There are several different appraiser classifications in Kansas, determining what type of real estate the licensee may appraise.

Note: Although WSU’s real estate classes have not been pre-approved to meet the pre-licensing education requirements for an appraisal license, many students have applied for and received credit for our classes from the Kansas Real Estate Appraisal Board. In addition, any individual seeking a General Certified Appraiser license must have a Bachelors Degree or equivalent.

Mortgage Lending Licensing

Mortgage lending licensing is overseen by the Kansas Office of the State Bank Commissioner. Beginning in 2010, Kansas joined the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System (NMLS), providing a more consistent regulatory structure across the U.S.
