All emergency school closing will be posted on our website at www.FriedbergRealEstateSchool.org. The school will also notify all students in currently running courses via email of any school closing or delayed openings. All students must confirm correct email addresses on the first day of class for emergency closing purposes.
Should it be necessary to cancel a class for any reason, including failure to meet minimum registration requirements, we will notify all registered students, and offer to refund their fees or allow them to move to the next class.
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 within 90 days of original class start date. *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.
FEES/ REFUND POLCIY
Refunds for withdrawals requested a minimum of 10-days prior to the first class are issued at 100% minus a $50 processing fee, only when notification is submitted in writing. 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 a student withdraws in writing a minimum of 5-days prior to the start date of the class. Checks returned for any reason will incur a $75 fee. There are no refunds for withdrawals or no-shows within 5 days of the start of class or once class has begun. Late registration fee of $15 is in effect on registrations 5 days or less prior to start of class.
As part of the course, students are required to take and pass the school exam. Passing the school exam, is a prerequisite for registering and taking the state exam.
In the event that a student does not pass the Friedberg school exam, they may repeat the school exam for a charge of $25. Students can take a re-test up to 3 times, while paying the $25 fee each time. Students must call or email the school to schedule date/timing for make-up test or retest. A student may take the school test up to 3 times, and if the student is unsuccessful in passing after a third attempt, that student must retake the course, at a cost of $99 in order to take the school test again.
If a student does not pass the original school test, they may opt to attend 1 subsequent course of same nature for up to one year from the starting date of the original class for a fee of $99. A minimum grade of 70% is required to pass the exams.

Once students have passed the school exam, they are required to register to take the state exam in order to get licensed. The state exam must be taken within one year of the course completion date.

Please note: We would hope that our students score a minimum of 80% or higher in order to be well prepared for the state exam and would encourage anyone scoring between 70% and 80% to attend additional classes, review classes that are available, and to do a thorough review of the course materials prior to sitting for the state exam.
