Important Information for All South Carolina Appraisers

The South Carolina Real Estate Appraisers Board online renewal will open on April 1, 2024. Appraiser renewals are due by June 30, 2024. The online portal will be open up to midnight on June 30, 2024. After midnight, the license will be lapsed and you will need to complete and mail the reinstatement application, which must include stated late fees.

All appraisers licensed with this Board must have 28 hours of continuing education completed prior to paying the renewal fee for their license. This includes apprentices, except those licensed in the year prior to the renewal date. Apprentices licensed since July 1, 2023, will only need 14 hours of continuing education to renew. New apprentices recently licensed who completed the 2024 15-hour USPAP (QE3) do not have to complete the 7-hour update course. However, they still have to complete 14 hours of continuing education before renewing, if required to renew in 2024.

Every appraiser must complete the mandatory 2024 7-hour USPAP Update course as part of the 28 hours of continuing education. All continuing education must be in your CE Broker account before renewing. Providers are responsible for uploading approved courses once they are completed.

Additional questions can be directed to staff by choosing the appropriate option under "Contact Us" on the right side of the Real Estate Appraisers Board's homepage.

  • Important information for all Appraisal Management Companies registered with the South Carolina Real Estate Appraisers Board

    Appraisal Management Companies renew in South Carolina biennially in odd years, so the next renewal fee and documentation will be due June 30, 2025.

    Appraisal Management Companies are required to pay National Registry fees annually. The Board will begin collecting National Registry fees after April 1, 2024, and the fees must be paid by June 30, 2024. The National Registry form will be available on the Board's website on April 1, 2024 and can be completed and mailed directly to the Board any time before June 30, 2024.

    All registered Appraisal Management Companies, regardless of the initial registration date, must submit the completed National Registry form, even if no money is owed.

    The National Registry fee cannot be paid online. However, if you choose to, you can e- mail staff your completed form (available after April 1, 2024) and we can invoice the fee after documentation has been reviewed and approved. You may e-mail staff.

    Please review the website for mailing address, board e-mail address, and new or updated forms. As always, you can contact Board staff for answers to any of your questions concerning laws, policies and other requirements if you are unable to locate your answers on the website.
