Enrollment Policy: Elite Advantage Real Estate Academy is open to the general public and licensed by the NJ Real Estate Commission to conduct salesperson, continuing education (CE) and broker courses. The fee for the salespersons course is $375.00 and must be paid in full on the day class begins. Students must have a high school diploma or equivalent and be 18 years of age or older to qualify to take the state examination for licensing as a real estate salesperson. Each student must provide a copy of a valid ID (i.e. drivers license, passport, etc)
Any individual who has a physical or mental impairment or limitation described as a disability under the Americans with Disabilities Act, and requires any special accommodation, you must contact the school before enrolling. Certain accommodations require New Jersey Real Estate Commission’s advance approval and may not be available for DHARE classes.
Tuition must be paid in advance to register unless other arrangements are made and approved by the school Director. Books will be distributed upon receipt of fully paid registration. Classes may be postponed to another date if less than 6 students are pre-registered, in which event registration fees will be carried forward to the next school session. The registration fee and cost of books will be applied towards another class. A student may receive a full tuition refund if there is a conflict with the new class schedule.
Full payment is required prior to the first session of class. Elite Advantage Real Estate Academy accepts money orders, bank checks or credit cards. A $10 processing fee will be charged for all credit card payments. If a check is returned for non-sufficient funds, a $35 fee will be assessed, and the full balance will be due immediately before the student may continue in class. Any class time missed at this time will be counted towards the 15% maximum allowable miss time described in the course completion section below.
All students must read and agree to our school Tuition Refund Policy as written below upon entrance. Every student that is paid in full will be guaranteed a seat in class. Included in the tuition is a $100 non-refundable registration fee for Salesperson Pre-licensing. A student may request a refund in writing prior to the start of class for the refundable portion of the tuition. Written notice must be received by the school no later than 48 hours prior to the class start date. No refunds will be issued after the first class is completed, except for sickness, injury or extreme emergency, with proof of same given in writing, in which event, refund of prepaid tuition shall be pro-rated.
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 the school Director and/or the instructor before the beginning of their next class session.
In the event that the school director cancels a class, the student will receive a full and prompt refund.
Certificate of Course Completion
Elite Advantage Real Estate Academy will administer quizzes and a final examination. To obtain a Certificate of Course Completion, all students must receive a passing grade on the final examination of at least 70% on both sections of the final examination; full tuition payment and completion of the required hours (see attendance section) are required in order to receive certification from the school. A student may take the final examination up to 3 times which must be taken within 45 days of the course completion date.
In the event the certificate is lost, a duplicate may be obtained from the school by request. An administrative fee of $10 will be charged for the duplicate.
The NJ Real Estate Commission mandates the attendance policy. Students must attend 80% of the 75 hours required in order to receive a Certificate of Satisfactory Completion. All late arrivals and early departures will be recorded and if the hours exceed the allotted limits, the student must begin the class again. No student may sign in or out for another student.
