Value of a GRI Designation
HERE'S HOW TO ACHIEVE THE GRI DESIGNATION...
The GRI Program requires students to earn 60 hours of GRI credit.
The Graduate, REALTOR® Institute (GRI) symbol is the mark of a real estate professional who has made the commitment to provide a high level of professional services by securing a strong educational foundation.

36 GRI hours of core courses are required by all students.
These courses will each be 6 hours and will cover the following topics:
If a student chooses to count transactions for elective credit, 1 transaction = 2 elective GRI credits.
Students will pay a $10 processing fee for each transaction.
Students can choose to use a total of 12 transactions for elective credit totaling 24 hours for a $120 processing fee.
Complete one form for each transaction. If completing multiple transaction forms, all of them can be mailed at once with total amount due ($10 per transaction).
