Estate Certificate. This certificate does not require previous training in real estate

degree program. To enroll in the program all that is required is to be admitted as a non degree student at the University. Sections of the required classes are available online and on campus.
The individual courses are offered so the certificate program can be completed in
a year. This certificate program is not eligible for financial aid and courses from
other institutions cannot be transferred into the program.
The online courses have the same content, rigor and follow the same time schedule
as the University of Memphis. The online option allows the student to complete these
courses without leaving their home. Since the online courses are asynchronous, even
though they still have set deadlines, they do not require a student to be online at
a given time. The advantage of online is flexibility.
