Renewal of Qualifying Education (QE) Providers
QE providers are approved for a four-year term. Approved QE providers are required to pay an annual fee to maintain active status and must apply for renewal of their provider license every four years.
Pay your Annual Fee
- File a completed Education Provider Annual Fee Application
- Provide a statement indicating whether or not there are any judgments, petitions or liens against the school.
- Submit copies of advertising that have been used by the school during the past year. If you do not advertise, submit screen shots of your provider website.
- Pay the required fee.
TREC has developed an education provider annual fee application checklist as a resource for QE providers.
Renewal as a QE provider is subject to the same standards as initial approval.
File Your Application
- File a completed Qualifying Education Provider Application within 90 days of your expiration date. TREC will not require a financial review for renewal if you have a current statutory bond on file and there are no unsatisfied money judgments against you.
- Pay the required fee.
Providers cannot enroll students in courses 60 days before the provider's expiration date, unless the provider has submitted an application for renewal at least 60 days prior to the current expiration date.

Renewal of Real Estate and Inspector Qualifying Courses
Qualifying courses are approved for a four-year term. Approved QE providers may submit a new Qualifying Real Estate Course Application or Qualifying Inspector Course Application 90 days prior to the course expiration date. Renewal is based upon the current standards for initial approval and the application must include all requested materials. If the current course approval has expired, you may not offer the course until you have received a new course approval letter.
NOTE: Providing a Qualifying Course Renewal Certification indicating that there have been no changes to the content, presentation, design and delivery of the course, other than relevant statutory or rule updates and/or updates to promulgated contract forms, may accelerate the renewal process. The certification letter should be issued by the provider's operations manager or owner and submitted with the Qualifying Real Estate Course Application or Qualifying Inspector Course Application.
