To renew your license timely you must have your Continuing Education (CE) completed and posted to your record at the time the renewal fee is paid. The renewal fee must be paid within 90 days of the license expiration date. If Commission records do not show that you have completed your CE at the time you submit your renewal application, you must pay a $200 CE deferral fee, or renew in INACTIVE status. Paying the deferral fee will allow you to continue to be active in real estate activities and give you an additional 60 days from your expiration date to complete your CE. Section 535.71(dd) of the Rules of the Texas Real Estate Commission states “The provider shall award the student credit for the course no earlier than 24 hours after the student starts the course and after the student completes the course requirements for credit.”


Live courses include live instruction from our experienced course instructors, course materials and textbooks written by industry leaders, and the ability to communicate and collaborate with other students.
