Preliminary Decisions for Persons with Criminal Convictions or Sanctions:
The Real Estate Commission by law, has the authority to deny a license to any otherwise qualified candidate who has a prior criminal conviction or disciplinary sanction issued by an occupational licensing body. In order to prevent prospective licensees with convictions or sanctions from needlessly investing time and money in meeting the qualifications for licensure, the GREC has created a Preliminary Decision process. This procedure allows a prospective Licensee to apply for a Preliminary Decision and ask the Commission to advise them on whether the Commission would ultimately grant a license to a prospect based on their record. The Preliminary Decision is not binding to the GREC. For more information please visit the Georgia Real Estate Commission’s website at www.grec.state.ga.us

Students may not record any portion of the course by means of any video or audible devices. **If you are subject to court order child support payments and are delinquent in those payments, you may not be able to receive your license until those payments are current.
