A broker applicant may use a bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university to satisfy all of the "related" education requirements for a broker license or a broker applicant may use "related" courses towards the broker license education requirements. A bachelor's degree does not satisfy the required "core" courses More Information about SAE Requirements are available here
