How Do I Check My CE Credits?

  1. Log on to the North Carolina Real Estate Commission’s website,, using your license number and the last four-digits of your social security number.
  2. Select ‘CE License Information’ to review your credit hours at the top of the page. See example below:

How Many Credits Do I Need?

To maintain an active license, all North Carolina licensees need 4-hours for either the General Update or B-I-C Update and 4-hours for any Commission-approved elective. 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 his/her BIC status/eligibility.

My License is Inactive, Do I Still Need CE?

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

I Completed My CE, is My License Renewed?

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.
