How do I get my real estate license?

In order to sit for the salesperson’s license real estate exam, you must successfully complete a 60 hour, in-person (virtual live stream classes accepted) Real Estate Principles and Practices Course that meets the minimum requirements as set forth by the State of Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection Real Estate Commission. Real Estate University is an approved school that allows you to take your pre-licensing course.

Real Estate University offers flexible scheduling. You can complete your course in as little as 5 weeks. Our course days/times vary by class.

How long do I have to complete a licensing course?

What do I do after I complete the course?

Once I register, when can I begin classes? I don’t see a starting date on the website.

You can start any time! Once you register, you will receive a welcome email with course login instructions and details on how to retrieve your books/eBooks.

How is it that I can start any day? Won’t I be lost if I don’t start on a specific day?

The classes are module formatted so each class is an isolated topic. Therefore, you will not be lost no matter which day you start. There are students starting and finishing every day. For example, your first class might cover environmental issues and another student’s first class might be covering Fair Housing. The classes do not have to be taken in any particular sequence.

How do I get the books that go with the class?

You can either make arrangements to pick them up at the school during our office hours, have them shipped to you via FedEx for an additional $20 fee or choose the eBook option.

How much studying and homework is involved with this course?

You will receive two books. To be prepared for the class and state exam, you will need to read both books thoroughly and answer the chapter quizzes and end of book sample exams. Other than that, there is no homework required.

I am not a good test taker. Is the state exam really hard?

We prepare you very well for the state exam. You are also permitted to repeat classes at no additional cost while you prepare for your class/state exams and students can also purchase additional exam prep materials, or sign up for our affordable tutoring and/or an exam prep class.

Where is the state exam offered?

It is offered in Milford and West Hartford. The exam is offered 6 days a week and you can pick the day and time that works best for you. CT testers may also register to take the state exam in NY (Flushing, Forest Hills, Fresh Meadows, Manhattan, and White Plains, among others based on your preference and location. Additionally, CT testers may select MA testing locations in Auburn, Fall River, Springfield and West Boylston).

Can I take some of the modules in the day session and others in the night session?

Absolutely! The day and the evening session cover the same topic(s) so feel free to mix and match as your schedule permits. You may also join the live classes if this suits your schedule. Just understand that students aren’t allowed to take “partial” classes. That is, they can’t attend a portion of one class and some of the other, nor can they take the same module twice in one day to log hours.

I’m trying to log into the class, but the meeting hasn’t started yet, what do I do?

Our settings allow for students to join the meeting in order to be prepared for class start time or to communicate with classmates. However, the online meeting platforms have applied additional steps for security verification. If you are attempting to log in and it says the meeting has not yet begun or if it says the meeting host is in another meeting, please be certain you have selected the correct class/link and also please be assured we are working to remedy any technical difficulty as quickly as possible. Please do not call or text, etc. as it could delay the issue resolution.

I prefer a classroom setting. Do you offer any in-person classes?

Yes! We offer a seven (7) week, in-person course several times each year and they are held on Saturdays. The next one begins on September 24, 2022. The classes are from 9:00 am until 5:00 pm with a lunch break from 12:30 until 1:15 pm. The class is split into two sessions, one module in the morning and one module in the afternoon. Students can attend both modules each Saturday or choose to take just one in person and the other through Zoom.  

Can you mix in-person classes with the Zoom classes?

Yes! Many of our Saturday students choose to take some of their classes via zoom and vice versa. We make it easy for our students to take the classes in formats which will work for their individual schedules and learning styles.
