Grading Criteria:

The minimum passing percentage for continuing education courses is 70%. Please note that since you are enrolled in Allied Real Estate School, live lectures are not required to pass the course or sit for your state exam.

What to Bring:

The final exam is open-book, which means that you may use the course textbook when
taking the final. The course textbook is the only book you may use during the final exam. Slide rules or silent, battery operated, electronic pocket-sized calculators which do not have a print-out capability or an alphabetic keyboard may be used if desired. A valid photo I.D. is also required.
When you are ready to take your final exam log-on to www.realestatelicense.com, click “student log-in”, and enter your unique username and password that was given to you at your time of enrollment. You will then click the “final exam” link that is posted on your homepage. Read each question and click the circle next to the answer you select. When you are finished click “Submit” to see your score. If you have not completed the exam after the allotted time is up, the exam will stop, and it will be graded as is. The final exam cannot be downloaded or printed. Your score on the final exam is your course grade. Once you have completed the course, please take a moment to fill out the Department of Real Estate’s course evaluation form located at www.dre.ca.gov .

Student Proctor Information

Allied can provide you with a proctor in your area. It’s Allied’s responsibility to confirm that the proctor meets all the DRE rules. It is your responsibility to contact your exam proctor to confirm receipt of the final exam and to schedule a time to take the final exam.

Refund Policy

If you have completed at least one lesson but no more than 60% of the lessons in the course and wish to withdraw, you are entitled to receive a “pro-rata” refund for the unused portion of the tuition until the course termination date (see enrollment agreement for exact termination dates). Refunds will be paid according to the following formula: A non-refundable registration fee of 20% of the cost of the course (not to exceed $200) is deducted from the total amount paid for the course. The remaining amount is then divided by the total number of lessons in the course. This amount constitutes the “per lesson” charge for the course. Finally, the number of incomplete lessons in the course is multiplied by the “per lesson” charge. The remaining amount is the refund that is owed to you.

If you have completed more than 60% of the lessons in the course and wish to withdraw, you would not be entitled to a refund.

The refund period ends on the initial course termination date, even if an extension is granted in order for you to complete any unfinished lessons.

Any refunds for cancellations will be paid within 30 days.
