Beginning in Fall 2018, real estate courses will be available online. Instruction will be based on real-world, professional experiences that make learning dynamic.

The Real Estate Certificate is designed for anyone interested in pursuing a career in real estate. Students who complete the four real estate courses for the certificate are eligible to take the State of Ohio Real Estate Licensing Exam. Additionally, completion of the Real Estate Certificate provides business skills and awareness that are essential to a successful career in real estate.

The Real Estate Certificate Program requires 31 credit hours of coursework, 19 of which provide a solid foundation needed to be successful. This includes use of computer applications; principles of management and marketing; financial accounting; and the math skills needed in business.
