Student Membership



A career in real estate offers many rewards: flexibility not often enjoyed by other professions, satisfaction from helping people, and importance—the real estate industry drives a significant component of our nation’s economy. An OCAR Student Membership is a great way to get introduced to this industry.

Student members must be at least 18 years of age, cannot hold a real estate or appraiser license, and must be enrolled in a post-secondary education institution or a California Bureau of Real Estate (CalBRE)-approved real estate licensing school. Student membership with OCAR is ideal for qualified students who are interested in real estate issues, want to connect with real estate professionals, and want to supplement licensing classes with other professional development courses.

OCAR student members

  • receive OCAR’s magazine, the Orange County REALTOR® magazine, by mail every two months;
  • receive valuable email updates regarding real estate industry issues and market trends;
  • gain access to hundreds of classes; and
  • are welcome to attend special OCAR events, such as the Annual Membership Meeting and Housing Market Forecast.

Student members do not have access to MLS or REALTOR® designation classes, Listing Agent 101, or Buyers Agent 101 and will not receive CalBRE credits. Membership is valid until the end of the calendar year.


Annual Dues

  • $25 (membership is valid until the end of the calendar year)
