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 licensees, if your renewal date is less than 6 months from the issuance date of your license, the Kansas Real Estate Commission (KREC) 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 KREC at 785-296-3411.

For Kansas

Please go to the KREC website and click on “CEU Verification” under Quick Links. You can renew your license online if all your CE credits appear. Otherwise, print a Renewal ApplicationForm and mail it with the latest copies of your course certificates.

About Kansas Renewal

Everyone renews at a different time in a two-year period depending on your last initial. You need a three-hour course titled "Kansas Salesperson and Broker Core", referred to as “Core Class” on the KCRAR calendar. (Brokers also need the "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 last day of the month immediately preceding the license expiration date. Renewals made in the expiration month are assessed an additional $50 by the KREC.
