Education and your Real Estate License

How Do I Check My CE Credits?

  1. Log on to North Carolina Real Estate Commission’s website, www.ncrec.gov, using your license number and the last four-digits of your social security number

  2. Select CE License Information to review credit hours at the top of the page(example below)

How Many Credits Do I Need?

All North Carolina licensees need 4-hours for either the General Update or BIC Update and 4-hours for any Commission-approved elective to maintain an active license. The annual deadline to complete the required 8-hours is June 10th.

*A BIC or BIC-eligible Broker who takes the General Update course and an elective will maintain an Active license but will lose BIC status/eligibility.

Do I Still Need CE if My License is Inactive?

Yes. If you are a licensee on Inactive status, you must still complete the CE requirements to avoid being CE deficient.

Is Me License Renewed When I Complete My CE?

No. Licensees have until June 30th every year to renew their license, despite meeting the CE requirements. A $45.00 fee must be submitted to the Commission by or on June 30th for a license to be renewed. Failure to renew a license will result in a license that is Expired, not Inactive.

For guidance on renewing your license, please watch the video below:

Please call the GAR offices if you have additional questions regarding CE Classes or issues with registration or reporting.
