Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know what to do and what not to do while I run a school?
Become familiar with A.R.S. § 32-2135 and Articles 4 and 5 of the Commissioner's Rules. Operate with integrity. Contact the Department's Education Division through the Message Center if you have any questions.
My company wants to offer real estate courses for credit. What's required?
The first requirement is to file an Application for Certificate of Approval to Operate a Real Estate School (ED-100). You'll need to identify each person and, if an entity, every officer, director, member, manager, partner, owner, trust beneficiary holding 10% or more beneficial interest, stockholder owning 10% or more stock, and person exercising control of the school. Supporting documentation is required. A Fingerprint Clearance Card must be provided to the Department by each owner of 10% or more.
Schools should review, understand, and operate under the provisions of A.R.S. § 32-2135 and the Commissioner's Rules, particularly Article 4. You should review and become familiar with those, at the very least. Other statutes within Arizona Revised Statutes, Title 32, Chapter 20, and the Commissioner's Rules (Arizona Administrative Code, Title 4, Chapter 28) also apply.
Once I'm licensed as a school, what else do I have to do?
- Obtain approval of the courses you wish to offer for credit and the instructors who will teach them.
- Provide notice to the Department before presenting courses (30 days prior to a new course; 14 days prior to a currently-approved course that has not changed).
- Monitor attendance and keep a record of students who attend approved courses.
- Issue credit to students who complete the course.
- Renew school, course and instructor approval when due.
- Make sure your advertising is accurate and not misleading, and properly identifies your school.
