Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) concerns, Real Estate licensees whose licenses expire in October or November can now renew their licenses without being enrolled in the FBI RAP Back Fingerprint System, (if they have completed their required continuing education (CE)).  If your license expires October or November, complete your CE requirements and you will be able to renew your license on-time without being fingerprinted.  In addition, please refer to the Division Newsletter for more information.
