10.8. Local, State and Federal bodies govern the educational requirements and aid in creating the requirement to become, renew or apply for any appraisal registration, license, certification or ability to practice.

11.1. Also known as Loan Origination.
11.2. See the calendar for Beginning and Ending of courses:
11.3. This class is not offered on a home-study basis and attendance is mandatory. Any absence will require the student to re-enroll in the next available course offering and audit the total number of days missed in the next session only.

Students who have taken and completed all hours as required in this section yet are unable to pass the licensing exam have 1 calendar year from the original enrollment date to retake the course without paying additional tuition. Said retake is also known as an audit. Students who wish to retake the course and who have exceeded the aforementioned 1 year audit period may retake the course by paying 60% of the course tuition. Said retake is also known as a course reinstatement. See section 30.

- Refund Policy – See Section 20.10.1 for information about online / email or fax withdrawal
20.1 All course withdrawals are treated in the exact same format regardless of student circumstance. This prevents discrimination based on the course withdrawal qualifying factors noted within Nevada Revised Chapter 394. All refund requests must be in writing and directed to Key Realty School. Refund requests shall be calculated as follows:
20.1.1. Requests made during the first 60% of a course shall be prorated based on that portion of the course completed as of the date written on the request (but not dated after receipt of such request).
20.1.2. The course shall be prorated based upon the start date noted on the enrollment form.
188.8.131.52. Due to the availability of correspondence courses, classroom attendance is not an indicator of attendance. Therefore the request for a refund will always be processed in accordance with the start date noted on the enrollment form. The maximum number of hours of classroom instruction for the class in question will be used. An example of this refund policy would be:
184.108.40.206. Example: Student 1 purchases the 90 hour real estate correspondence course for $260 (start date is the same as registration date for home study courses, start date is also noted on the enrollment form)
Student 1 applies for a refund 3 days later after the course start date
Course cost $260 X 90% (registration fee) = $234
90 hours of pre licensing has a maximum of 8 hours of education per day (11days of tuition total to complete 90 hours) The tuition cost of $234 / 11days = $22 per day
3 days X $22 per day = $66 of tuition used
$234 – $66 = $168 of tuition still refunded to Student 1
20.2. There will be no refund given after 60% of a class has been completed. NOTE: Actual attendance is not an indicator of completion wherein completion is based on the ability for which the class can be completed and time passed from the date of enrollment.
20.3 All forms required to submit for a refund are readily available at the admissions office of the school.
20.4. Refunds will be made within 15 days after receipt of written request or information will be supplied to the student indicating that no tuition is remaining. Once a student completes a course withdrawal form, the withdrawal becomes active and the student is no longer permitted to utilize the course resources. Refunds of any tuition remaining or written information informing the student that no tuition is remaining is processed on the 1st and 15th of every month.
20.5. Key Realty School will withhold a nonrefundable registration and processing fee of 10%. (Maximum of $100). This registration fee will not be applied when the enrollment / tuition paid date is within the prior 2 business days.

20.11 Under no exception will tuition be refunded if the course materials and or course start date were noted as delivered more than 30 days prior to the written request to withdraw from the course the student is enrolled in. In further definition, if the course was made available to the student wherein the student did not attend by choice or necessity and both enrollment and course offering were more than 30 days prior to written request for a refund, no refund will be afforded as the students reservation was retained and a space was afforded to the student during said offering. Though a student may not withdraw to receive any portion of a tuition refund after said 30 days, the student can request their file to indicate a “No grade” should the student find this notation necessary relative to continued courses work at another institution.
20.12 Physical materials can be returned and a 90% refund for said materials will be provided so long as the material is returned in new condition and returned within 30 days of purchase. (New condition implies that no writing and no modifications have been made to the material) In addition, said material cannot be part of a course material set wherein the time allotment dictated within section 20 does not permit the return or withdrawal from the course. Only materials in New Condition can be returned wherein the student would receive a refund for the materials. If the materials are not returned or returned in used condition, the amount of a new product purchase as noted on www.Amazon.com would be deducted from any tuition refund that is to be issued.

All real estate pre licensing students are considered home study) or students who are currently in the educational program when the course offering is canceled will be issued a refund. Students who are auditing course sessions after the scheduled duration of course work will not be issued any refund on canceled courses.
22.7.1. Example of course cancellation with refund – Student A starts the real estate pre licensing course. Two weeks into the course, the course is cancelled because of instructor illness. Student A has the ability to receive a full refund or begin the classes again when the courses are offered again.
22.7.2. Example of course cancellation without a refund – Student A starts the real estate pre licensing course. Five weeks into the course, the course is cancelled because of instructor illness.

22.214.171.124. Some courses require attendance and are listed by hours completed to be eligible for a refund as noted in 22.7.1 or 22.7.2. Other courses are periods of time passed because classroom attendance is not mandatory and education is measured by test results. See the course calendars for hours:
23.7. All classes not considered home study require a total number of hours to receive a certificate of education. No certificate of education will be issued without the required number of hours completed. Make up days are scheduled at the sole discretion of the instructor. If no make-up day is available or the student has missed more hours than the make-up day provides, the student may audit the total number of days / hours missed in the next available course date only.
