Missed the Real Estate CE Deadline? We can help!

Yikes! The 10th of June has come and gone, leaving behind a trail of incomplete Continuing Education (CE) hours.

Is your license is on the brink of becoming inactive as of 12:01AM 7/1/24? You may be wondering, "What's next?" We have you covered!

Don't Forget to Renew!

Even if you missed the CE requirement this year, it's critical to renew your license. Failing to do so by 11:59 pm on June 30, 2024, can result in your license expiring. Imagine having to reactivate AND reinstate your license – not an ideal scenario!

Head over to to log in to your Licensee Account to renew your license. Once you've filled out the online renewal form and submitted your $45.00 payment to the NCREC, what comes next? How do you reactivate your renewed license if you've not met your CE hours requirement?

How To Reactivate Your License

According to NC Real Estate Commission Rule 58A .1703, here's the protocol for reactivating your broker license from an inactive status:

If a broker’s license has been inactive for less than 2 years and there is a CE deficiency, complete the current year’s GenUp course and 1 elective, then take either 1 or 2 more elective courses to make up the number of hours not taken in the previous license year (16 hour maximum). Then submit form 2.08.

Completely Missed CE Last Year

Did you not complete any CE last year? This means that you will need to take one General Update Course and three Elective CE Courses.

  1. Renew your license through by 11:59 pm on June 30, 2024.

  2. Click here to enroll in four CE Classes. (Classes will not be available to complete until 7/1.) Save 10% if you sign up for 3+ CE Classes with us by using the code 3ORMORE.

  3. Successfully complete all four CE courses and receive your course completion certificates directly from us.

  4. File Form 2.08 to activate your NC Real Estate License.

Completed an Update or Elective CE Course Last Year, But Not Both

Are You a Broker-in-Charge (BIC) Whose License Went Inactive?

If you're a BIC and your license has turned inactive, we understand you might be feeling a bit overwhelmed. Once your license goes inactive, you lose BIC Eligibility Status. But don't worry; we're here to guide you through the process of regaining it.

Firstly, you'll need to reactivate your license. This involves taking the General Update (not the BICUP) and the required number of electives. Once your license is active again, you can start working on regaining your BIC Eligible status. This step requires you to retake the 12-Hour BIC course, which is exclusively offered by the NC Real Estate Commission.

The silver lining? You don't have to travel to Raleigh anymore! The 12-HOUR BIC course is now fully online and self-paced, allowing you to learn and regain your BIC status at your own convenience.

Remember, stumbling blocks are just stepping stones in disguise. Turn this situation into an opportunity to further enhance your skills and knowledge in the industry. Take the lead and join our courses to regain your active status and continue providing exceptional services as an NC Real Estate Agent!
