You have one year from the date of purchase to attend and complete courses including school exams.

  1. Tuition to the school does not include books/material.
  2. All State fees are IN ADDITIONAL to your school tuition and will be paid appropriately by the student.
  3. Once school tuition is paid, there are no mandatory additional fees required to attend classes.
  4. Optional additional fees: Textbooks/material, study packages, study videos, etc.

After the completion of the required course hours, students are required to take and pass the school exam (within their tuition) in order to receive the course satisfaction certificate required to register and sit for the state licensing exam.

In the event that the student does not pass the school exam, they may repeat the school exam as many times as necessary, with no additional cost within their tuition time, every 24 hours. If the student does not pass the school test, they may attend subsequent classes at no charge within their tuition time. An additional purchase of an extension may be required to continue.

A grade of 70% is required to pass the exam for students who registered with the school prior to 2024. A grade of 80% is required to pass the exam for students who registered with the school in or after 2024.

Once students pass the school exam, they are required to register to take the state exam to get their license. The exam must be taken and passed within one year of the course completion date. For information on the state test please visit, www.psiexams.com.

 After taking and passing the state exam, students are required to be fingerprinted through Identogo. The fingerprints are valid for 90 days. After being fingerprinted the student must apply for their license through a sponsoring real estate broker within one (1) year of passing their school/course exam.

Failing to complete this process will result in the student needing to repurchase and retake the entire 75 hour pre-licensing course. We cannot extend your time after you are entered into the PSI testing system.

Per NJAC11:5-2.2(s), the attendance policy is as follows:

To satisfactorily complete any pre-licensing course a student must achieve a passing grade and attend at least 80% of the session hours required for the course by NJAC11:52.1.

CFREE will monitor the student’s hours. Live-Online classes are tracked during class upon entering the virtual classroom. In-Person classes are tracked by an admin member. Self-Paced classes are tracked via 3rd party counter.

All students are responsible for keeping track of their own chapters date of attendance.
