The course design is dictated by the Department of Real Estate (DRE) and requires you to demonstrate mastery of the subject matter in one chapter of the course before progressing to the next. This means:
- The online chapter quizzes are mandatory.
- You must advance through the online chapter quizzes in a linear fashion and you cannot advance to the next chapter quiz until the previous chapter’s quiz has been completed.
- You cannot access the course final examination and complete the course unit all chapter quizzes have been completed and minimum time* (18 days) has elapsed. Once all the qualifications have been met you students will be able to access their course exam.
The DRE allows each course to be completed in a MINIMUM time of 2 1/2 weeks (18 calendar days) from the date you receive the course material. The MAXIMUM time we allow for completion of the course is 1 year from the date of enrollment.
The 2 1/2 week rule dictates how quickly you can take the final exam and complete each course. For example, the absolute fastest you can complete two courses is 5 weeks. REMEMBER, the rule is:2 1/2 weeks ( 18 calendar days) from the date you receive the ebook or hardcopy textbook for each course. If you still have questions about how fast you can complete your course(s), please call the school for clarification.
Should you not be able to complete this course within one (1) year of the date of enrollment, (for any reason, no exceptions), you may extend your enrollment for a period of six (6) months for $60.00 or one year for the full course fee. If you extend for six months, you have six months from the original expiration date of your course(s). If you extend for one year, you have one year from the date of re-enrollment. REMEMBER, if the textbook edition has changed, you will be required to purchase the current textbook to extend the course.
