CLASSROOM REFUND / TUITION POLICY
All students must read and agree to our School Tuition Refund Policy prior to the start of the first class. This will be provided in your welcome email you will receive once signed up.
Tuition will be refunded if a course is cancelled, by the school, for any reason.
Any student who determines that they may not be eligible for licensure due to their anticipated response to any of the Real Estate Commission's "eight qualifying questions," which will be provided the first day of class, may withdraw their enrollment and receive a full refund provided that they notify their instructor and/or the School Director before the beginning of their next class session.
No tuition will be refunded after the first class except as stated above.
If a pre-registered student wishes to drop out of a class, a written notice must be submitted to the Director at least 72 hours in advance of the starting date in order to receive a tuition refund as stated above. Notice must be sent to GeorgeB@SignatureRealtyNJ.com email.
Registration may be limited. Registrations are accepted on a first-paid, first confirmed basis. Upon receipt of your registration, you will receive a welcome email confirming your enrollment in the course. Confirmation emails are sent out within 24 hours of receipt of registration (not including weekends). Until you have received a confirmation email, you are not confirmed as enrolled in the course.
You may transfer to another start date free of charge one time. To transfer free of charge, you must provide written notification ONE WEEK in advance of your start date; then, you will receive written confirmation from us. Your new start date must be within one year of your original start date. If you have not provided one (1) week's written notice, we will allow you to transfer to another course within one year of your original start date for a $50 transfer fee, so long as there is seating available in that course.
This is a state approved school and all attendance is recorded and inspected by the Department of Banking & Insurance & New Jersey Real Estate Commission. If attendance is virtual you will be required to fill out an online form at the beginning and end of class to confirm your attendance. Please do not leave until the instructor dismisses the class. Students may not miss more than 20% (15 hours) of class time. If more than 20% of class time is missed, those classes must be made up within 30 days or the course will have to be retaken and an additional tuition fee will be assessed at the same rate as your original course cost. All classes start on time and will be locked 30 minutes after start time. If you anticipate being more than 30 minutes late, you’ll need to send an email to GeorgeB@signaturerealtynj.com
MAKE UP POLICY
Students who miss a class will have the option of waiting to the next cycle to make that class up, at no additional cost, or they can proceed forward if they still have the required minimum hours after subtracting what was missed. After 30 days, there are no make-up classes available and students will have to pay and retake the course. Keep in mind that if a class is missed, it will be covered in the review days
