What to Expect
Earning your Master of Real Estate (MRE) degree from REALTOR® University will give you extensive applied knowledge that you can use both in your business today and your career tomorrow. To gain this unparalleled credibility and recognition, we have a set of degree requirements which incorporate learning from the Business prerequisite, the Real Estate Core, and your selected concentration area.
But before we get into the details, it is important to keep in mind that while the MRE program may be completed by part time students, it still requires a great deal of effort and your full commitment.
Basic Graduation Requirements
To graduate, MRE students must receive credit for at least 12 courses (36 semester-credit hours), consisting of 7 program-specific and 5 elective and concentration courses. Some students may also be required to complete up to 7 Business Prerequisite courses and 1 or 2 Prerequisite Skills courses – Foundations of Managerial Mathematics (GPRS 400) and/or Foundations of Professional Communications (GPRS 410) – credits from which do not count toward graduation requirements.
In addition to fulfilling the graduation requirements for the MRE program, all students must:
- Achieve a cumulative grade point average of 3.00 or higher (on a 4.00 scale).
- Ensure that the registrar receives an official transcript validating completion of a baccalaureate degree from a U.S. institution of higher education that is accredited by or in candidacy status with a regional accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education; international students must hold a degree recognized as equivalent to a U.S. baccalaureate degree.
- Fulfill all financial obligations to the University.
Students should note that graduation with distinction is awarded to students completing their programs with CGPAs of 3.70 or higher, when taking into consideration only the grades earned from the first taking of all coursework.
Graduation ceremonies are held in May each year. Students are eligible to attend the ceremony if they are completing their final program requirements during the same semester in which graduation is held or completed the program in one of the previous three semesters.
