Reporting: Real estate course completions are reported to the Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC) each business day. If it is after 12:00 pm CST, the TX MCE 9-8 Form(s) you faxed will be sent to TREC the following business day. Your account will be updated and your certificate of completion will be emailed to you once we have forwarded your form(s) to TREC. It may take on average 7-10 business days from the time we report your hours before the Commission updates your license and/or updates their website with the hours. Please be patient with this process and understand that it may vary depending on your state. Course completion(s) are reported on the designated and publicly posted scheduled days. Course completion(s) will be reported the following scheduled reporting day from the course completion date(s).
Repeat course in back to back renewals: According to Texas Rule Chapter 535, Subchapter I, Section 535.92 (3h), credit will not be given for attendance of the same course more than once during the term of the current license or during the two‐year period preceding the filing of an application for late renewal or return to active status.
Max hours in 24 hr period: Per TREC: Effective 9/01/07, an MCE online course cannot be completed in less than 24 hours. This will seriously affect those licensees who wait until the last day of their renewal period to take and complete an MCE course to renew their license.
