Pay Your Renewal Fee and File Early – 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. Effective January 1, 2015, 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.

All students taking our TREC SAE courses will be asked to provide their license number upon course launch. This update eliminates the need for licensed sales agents and brokers (applying for renewal or a license upgrade application) to send their course completion certificate(s) directly to TREC. All completion certificates of the courses taken are reported by 360training.com to TREC with 24-48 business hours of completion.
