Utah State Requirement Details for Real Estate Pre-Licensing Education
Hours Required by the State: 120 hours
Seat Time: The Utah Division of Real Estate requires that all students spend a minimum amount of seat time engaged in the course content. Our online course delivery system manages this requirement for you.
Pre-Licensing Final Exams: Final exams must be passed with a minimum of 70% and may be taken as many times as necessary.
Fingerprinting and Background Check Information: Beginning in January 2020, all renewals for REAL ESTATE (BOTH ACTIVE AND INACTIVE LICENSEES) will need to obtain a fingerprint background check and enroll in RAP Back. The cost for fingerprinting, processing, and enrolling in RAP Back will be $45.00. The Division of Real Estate has purchased a LiveScan fingerprinting machine that will be available for licensees beginning in January.
Criminal History Disclosure: Per the Utah Administrative Code, we are required to present the following disclosure:
Upon application with the division, the applicant will be required to:
- Accurately disclose your criminal history according to the licensing questionnaire provided by the division;
- Submit fingerprint cards to the division and consent to a criminal background check; and
- Provide to the division complete court documentation relative to any criminal proceeding that you are required to disclose.

The CE Shop will provide students with an electronic certificate of completion, upon completion of the course. Certificates will remain in your account for a minimum of five years, should you need additional copies. Please refer to your license application to determine if you need to submit your certificate of completion with your license request. Course completion dates are recorded using Central Standard Time. Please note that the date of your certificate of completion will reflect this.
Post-Licensing: If you hold a Sale's Agent license and this renewal is your first one since original licensure, you are required to complete a 12-hour New Agent Post-Licensing real estate course prior to your first license renewal. If you need to take this course, select "Post-Licensing" for course type above to view this course.
