RES 1101, 1201, 1301, and 1401 are pre-license courses. These courses meet the educational requirement for taking the Real Estate Salesperson's License exam. The Ohio Real Estate Commission states that a specific number of seat hours must be met for each pre-license class. Students are required to attend the full duration of all classes in order to meet the minimum requirement. If a student misses any class time, it may not be made up outside of the established class times for each term. The seat time is part of the requirements for this class. If you do not satisfy the seat time requirements, you will be given an F for the course. An incomplete will not be awarded. Real Estate Investing track: For those who wish to go into personal real estate investing (buying and selling properties, residential rentals).
