Information on How to Apply in DELPROS

All applications are submitted our online system DELPROS. We no longer accept paper applications.


In order to apply for a license or approval or submit a service request, you must first have a DELPROS user account. To LOG IN or CREATE a DELPROS (Delaware Professional Regulation Online Services) user account:

  1. Go to:
  2. Click GO on the Apply/Manage a License and Service Requests tile.
  3. If you do not have a DELPROS user account, click the REGISTER button on the left side of page for NEW USERS.
  4. If you already have a DELPROS user account, enter your email address and password on the right side for EXISTING USERS and click the LOGIN button.

DELPROS allows you to save your incomplete application and return to it later to finish the process. You only have six (6) months to submit your application once you begin.

  • If you do not submit your application within six months of starting it, you will be required to restart the entire online application again.

You may check the status of your application online throughout the entire application process by using the “View Application Status” feature in DELPROS on your e-License dashboard.


  1. Know the requirements for the license or approval you are pursuing.
  2. Request and gather all documents required to upload on the Attachments page. All information and forms are located on your profession’s webpages.


On the ATTACHMENTS page of your application, you may be instructed to:

  • either “attach” or “upload” the required document(s) directly to your application. This means you will find the document(s) saved on your computer or device and upload it to your application.
  • click “acknowledge” . This means you will either mail the documents yourself or request the “third-party” to mail the document(s) directly to the Board office.
    • Examples of “third-party forms” are transcripts from schools, employment verifications from a supervisor, or license verifications from another state.
  • Forms requiring a supervisor signature, seal, or notary may have to be MAILED to the Board office directly UNLESS the document specifically indicates to UPLOAD the document.

When to Apply for Real Estate Instructor Certification

  • Submit an application for certification as a Real Estate Instructor at least 60 days before you are required to teach the course(s).
  • To maintain your active instructor certification, you must submit a new Real Estate Instructor application at least 60 days before your current certification expires. To submit a new application, from your DELPROS Dashboard, click the APPLY FOR A NEW LICENSE button. Follow the online instructions to complete the application. If your certification expires, you are required to re-apply for certification, see Reapply for or Reinstate a license.

    Failure to file within the appropriate time limit may delay your request for approval.
