Beginning July 2019, all Salesperson applicants and Broker applicants who have never been licensed in Louisiana will be required to create an account on StateReporting.com to obtain an "Applicant ID." This Applicant ID will be used in the reporting of course completions through StateReporting.com. Louisiana Salespeople applying for a Broker license can use their Sales license number instead of registering for an Applicant ID.

Students must provide their Applicant ID to the school before completion of the pre-license coursework so their education can be recorded and tracked prior to obtaining their real estate license number.
