Graduate REALTOR® Institute

Due to COVID-19 Alpha may move a course from the classroom to virtual at any point prior to or within the course.

The Graduate REALTOR® Institute (GRI) is an education program and designation sponsored by Virginia Association of REALTORS® (VAR). GRI is nationally recognized by NAR and is one of the most popular designations among REALTORS®. This program focuses on developing and increasing participants’ professionalism and skill level in ways that positively affect their bottom line.

To earn the GRI designation in Virginia, you must:

  • complete the required coursework within five (5) years
  • receive a passing grade for each course and not miss more than 15 minutes of any one module session
  • hold membership in the National Association of REALTORS®
  • complete the GRI designation application and pay the one-time application fee

To learn more about GRI, visit VR's GRI course page. If you have questions, please visit VR's GRI FAQ.


GENERAL/REFUND/CANCELLATION POLICY: You must be a REALTOR® to hold this designation. Multiple classes and other requirements are necessary to be awarded the designation. Students who arrive more than 15 minutes late or who leave early will not receive credit for the designation nor for CE/PL credits. Students who withdraw from a course in writing at least forty-eight hours prior to the start of the course will receive a refund less a $25.00 administrative fee. Failure to notify the school in writing at least forty-eight (48) hours prior to the start date will result in registration fees being classified as non-transferable and non-refundable.

In the event of a course cancellation by Alpha, Alpha is not responsible for expenses incurred by the registrant such as travel expense, etc.

Alpha College of Real Estate reserves the right to cancel a course with a full refund to all paying participants. Classes may be postponed or cancelled if a minimum number of students have not pre-registered.
