New law brings changes for Military Members, Veterans, and Spouses

Active duty military members, returning military veterans, and their spouses and/or dependants may now qualify for temporary licensure or expedited application processing under Arkansas law A.C.A. 17-1-106.  Those military members, veterans, and spouses/dependants who hold a valid real estate license in another state and meet the conditions in the law, can receive a temporary real estate license during the application process. Applicants not currently licensed in another jurisdiction may qualify for expedited processing for licensure.  Contact the AREC regarding qualifications for this exciting opportunity!

ARES is approved by the Arkansas State Approving Agency to offer VA Benefits for classroom offerings. All we need is a letter of eligibility submitted by the student to enroll that student in a course. Potential students can request a letter of eligibility online or  by calling 1-888-442-4551.
