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 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.

How long will it take me to complete my real estate 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 location.

How long do I have to complete a licensing course?

Real Estate University allows you 1 year to complete your pre-licensing course.

How do I register for the course?

You can register on our website under the salesperson category. Simply choose your location and select if you need books.

What do I do after I complete the course?

Real Estate University will give you step-by-step instructions on how to apply to take the state exam.

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

You can start any time, as long as we have space. Once you register, someone from our team will contact you to find out what day you’d like to begin.

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.

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

You can pick them up the day of your first class, or make arrangements with the office to pick them up earlier. Whichever works out best for you.

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 allowed to repeat some classes with no charge (if we have space), 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 7 days a week and you can pick the day and time that works best for you.
