The school does not guarantee the transferability of its credits to any other institution unless there is a written agreement with another institution. Presently, there are no such agreements in place.
Post CE Course Completion:
Once courses are completed, students must “certify” that they were the student/licensee who completed the coursework. This is accomplished by entering the username and password that the student created at the time of enrollment. A mandated course and instructor evaluation is also presented at this time to the student. Once certification has taken place, the student’s certificate of completion is sent to the student via email and is kept on record by the school for a minimum of five years unless otherwise stated. Any exceptions to these rules will be provided to you in the state requirement details, email instructions, and/or course orientation and completion slides.
It is the responsibility of the student to provide the school with the student’s correct and complete real estate license number and correct and complete first and last name as is currently on record with the entity that issued the student’s license. The school will not be responsible or liable for any disciplinary action by any regulatory entity including, but not limited to, late/ reinstatement fees or changes in license status to the licensee as a result of incorrect license information provided by the student.
