This includes Kansas salespersons applying for a broker license and persons licensed in another state seeking licensure in Kansas by equivalent requirements met.
Fingerprint Waiver Form

Fingerprint cards may be requested from pre-license course providers (Career Education systems), Kansas Pearson VUE exam centers, or the Kansas Real Estate Commission (KREC) by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and mailing address.
The applicant may go to a local police department, county sheriff’s office or the Topeka office of the Kansas Bureau of Investigation to be fingerprinted. An appointment may be necessary and a fee may be required.
Fingerprinting is also conducted at Career Education Systems. Please call for specific dates and times.
Instructions for Completing Fingerprint Cards
