WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Appraisal Foundation) – Graduates with a bachelor of science from Texas A&M University’s agricultural economics with finance and real estate option degree program may be able to receive education credit toward the Real Property Appraiser Qualification Criteria.
According to an announcement this week from the The Appraisal Foundation's appraiser qualifications board (AQB), graduates who hold this degree as of the 2009-10 academic year or later may be able to receive up to 276 hours toward the requirements to become a real property appraiser.
The AQB created the Undergraduate/Graduate Degree in Real Estate Review Program to recognize undergraduate and graduate degrees in real estate that meet the qualifying education course requirements established by the AQB for real property appraisers.
The approval helps regulatory agencies vet the qualifications of real property appraiser applicants while attracting high-quality students to approved colleges/universities.
A full list of approved schools and programs is available online.
