Roster Reporting Procedures for New York

Upon completion of all the course steps, a certificate will immediately, and always be available for printing from your account.

The course completion certificates are mailed to the DOS on the day of completion.


Licensees will no longer be sent a paper renewal in the mail. In accordance with the New York Green Initiative, the Division of Licensing Services will be requiring that all real estate licensees renew their licenses online.

The renewal reminders from the state will include instructions on how to renew a license online utilizing eAccessNY.

Online renewal applications that meet the requirements will be approved immediately and licensees will receive their License and Photo ID Card within two to three weeks.

Please be careful when completing the renewal online with the state. We have heard from several of you that it is very easy to answer no to the continuing education question. The below is copied from the DOS addressing this issue:

Q: What if I answer no to the continuing education question when renewing my real estate salesperson/broker license in eAccessNY?

If you answer no to this question, your renewal application will not be approved. You will receive notification from the Department acknowledging receipt of your renewal application. This notice will inform you that approval of your renewal application will not be granted until original certificate(s) of completion evidencing successful completion of the required continuing education or proof satisfactory to this division that you are exempt from this requirement is submitted to the Bureau of Educational Standards for review and approval. You must submit this proof even if you have answered no to this question in error. By answering NO when submitting your on line renewal, you have affirmed that you have not completed the required education and that you are not exempt from this requirement.
