License Renewal Requirement

Use our handy checklist to help you keep track of what you need to do.

Both states require 12 hours of CE (Continuing Education) every two years.

You may review your completed CE credits on the KREC and GREC websites. (Please allow up to 1 week for recently attended classes to appear. You can renew online in the appropriate month at the real estate commissions once all your classes appear there.)

But I just got my license! Do I have to renew it already?

For Missouri, if you obtained your license the month before your renewal date, the Missouri Real Estate Commission (MREC) will likely waive the CE requirement until the next renewal date. You may not need the CE hours, but you must pay the renewal fee. To be certain, contact MREC at 573-751-2628.

For Kansas salesperson licensees, if your expiration date is less than 6 months from the issuance date of your license, CE is not required until the next renewal date. Although you do not need the CE hours, you must pay the renewal fee. The CE exception does not apply to broker licensees. You may review your license record at  or email

For Kansas

Please go to the KREC website and click on “Renew or Update your License” to log in and verify your credits. You can renew your license online if all your CE credits appear or are forthcoming. The system will continuously check for CE and process your pending renewal once CE is recorded. Otherwise, print a Renewal Application Form and email or fax it with the latest copies of your course certificates.

About Kansas Renewal

License renewal dates vary and licensees may renew up to six weeks prior to the license expiration date. Brokers and Salespersons must take a three-hour course titled "Kansas Salesperson and Broker Core". Brokers must also take a second core course titled "Kansas Broker Core". After completing the core course(s), Salespersons need an additional nine hours of elective classes and Brokers need six additional hours. CE course completion and license renewal are due by the license expiration date. 

For Missouri

Please go to the MREC website to verify your CE credits. Click on “MREC Licensee Search” under Important Links. If your classes don't appear on the Details page of your license history, please contact MREC at 573-751-2628.
