Per NJAC11:5-2.2(s), the attendance policy is as follows:
To satisfactorily complete any pre-licensure course, a student must achieve a
passing grade and attend at least 80% of the session hours required for the
course by NJAC11:5-2.1.
Any student who misses more than 20% of the required hours will be required to make up the hours missed and missed material accordingly, before taking the final exam and receiving a completion certification from the school.
*Please note: We do not encourage students to miss the allowed 20%, as full attendance is best in order to prepare for exams. Making up hours in other offered courses, when available, is permitted at no additional fee.
Refunds for withdrawals requested by the Monday of the week prior to the first class are issued at 100% minus a $50 processing fee, only when notification is submitted in writing. Refunds for withdrawals submitted in writing by the Friday of the week prior to the first class are issued at 50% and a $50 processing fee still applies. No withdrawal refunds are given after Friday of the week prior to the first class; however, course fees received may always be applied to a future course, for up to one year from the start date of the original course.
If you have to withdraw from a course, you can sign up for subsequent course for up to one year from withdrawal date. All withdrawals must be in writing.
All students must be respectful of the instructor and other students.
No disruptive behavior of any kind will be tolerated and could be cause for dismissal. At
the discretion of the instructor, any student displaying such behavior will be expelled
from the class. No refunds will be given.
All cell phones, beepers and other electronic devices must be turned off during class.
Once students complete the course, they are required to take a school exam prior to registering and taking the state exam. In the event a student does not pass the school exam, they may repeat the school exam with a charge of $10 for each time the test is retaken. If you do not pass the school test, you may continue to attend subsequent classes of same nature at no charge until you pass for up to one year. You may call or email the school to schedule date/timing for make up test or retest.
*Please note: A student may take the school test up to 3 times, and if a student is unsuccessful in passing after a third attempt, that student must retake the class, at no addition cost, in order to take the school test again.
A grade of 70% is required to pass the exams
Salesperson Exam: 75 hour course.
Broker’s Exams: 90 hour General Broker’s Course
30 hour Agency and Ethics Course
