"[My online] The course was thought provoking and relevant to everyday life, very interesting study. The course was well written and easy to follow. I have tried other online courses from different RE schools but keep coming back to the Deborah Long courses because (for me), they are consistently the best! Again, thank you. "

about Online CE

Must I complete the online course in one sitting, or can I log off and come back to it later?

The online courses "remember" where you left off, so you can return to that section at a later time. Even if you get disconnected from your online service (e.g., you step away from your computer for an extended period of time), the online courses will be bookmarked for your return. The next time you enter your course, you will return to the lesson you were most recently working on.  Check the table of contents to see what you have to complete next.

You may be able to complete the course in less than four hours. For the advanced courses, it may take longer than four hours to complete all of the requirements of the courses. You will still receive credit for taking a four-hour elective.

Is there a final exam?

No, not for North Carolina students.  However, there are chapter quizzes and unit exams which you must complete with 90% proficiency.  You will be given many opportunities to reach 90%.  Please ignore any references to a final exam.  If you see a reference to "You have completed  95% of the course," you are done!

When you are done, simply email your instructor with your license number.  She'll take care of notifying the NCREC and will send you a certificate of completion.

Does my enrollment expire after a certain period of time?

You are able to enroll in ane online course at any time from July 1 to June 10 of the following year.  Generally, you must finish the course with 30 days of starting it.  However, if you are trying to earn elective credit to renew a North Carolina real estate license, you must enroll no later than June 10 and finish by midnight.  

If you take more than one elective course, you may be eligible to have the second course apply to the following year's elective credit.  Contact the NC Real Estate Commission for more information.

What is the refund policy?

If in the first seven days of enrolling, you determine that distance education is not for you and you decide not to finish the course, please email the instructor and you will be permitted to get a refund.

What is the cost of the courses?

Courses range from $63 to $67 for four-hour courses.  You may pay with a major credit card on line.  The site is secure.  You will be asked to provide a "shipping" address so that Deborah can mail you a completion slip.  You will also be asked for your social security number--you do not have to provide your social security number if you do not want to.  But please provide your name  and license number as is appears on your license card.

After you have provided this information, you will choose the course(s) you want and put the course in a "shopping cart."  Then you will be able to proceed to take the course.
