Reporting: The state requires schools to report course completions within ten days from the course completion date. Course completions will be reported within this time frame.

Expiration Date of Course: Course expiration dates vary by course but are generally one year after order date. Each individual course will have an expiration date listed in your account. 

Final Exams: Passing a final exam is not required to receive continuing education credit in Texas, therefore our system is set up so that final exams can be passed with a 0% passing score.

Certificates: Immediately upon real estate course completion, The CE Shop will provide students with an electronic copy of the course certificate of completion. Certificates will remain in your account for a minimum of five years, should you need additional copies at a later time. Please refer to your renewal application to determine if you need to submit your certificate(s) of completion with your renewal. Course completion dates are recorded using Central Standard Time. Please note that the date on your certificate of completion will reflect this.

Repeat Course in Back-to-Back Renewals: According to Texas Rule Chapter 535, Subchapter I, Section 535.92 (3h), credit will not be given for attendance of the same course more than once during the term of the current license or during the two‐year period preceding the filing of an application for late renewal or return to active status.

License Renewal Process: The process to renew in this state is to log in to the licensing system online and follow the prompts to renew. If TREC records do not reflect completion of CE requirements at the time you submit your renewal application, you must pay a $200 CE Deferral Fee, or renew in inactive status. Payment of the CE Deferral Fee allows you to remain active for an additional 60 days from your expiration date to complete CE requirements.
