Classes will run the full amount of time and students will not be dismissed early. Class hours are mandated by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, so students will not receive credit for the class if they do not complete the full number of hours. It is the responsibility of the student to make sure digital sign-in and sign-out are completed in order to receive full credit for attendance. This entails logging in on-time and staying for the entirety for all webinar sessions.
Cancellations / Withdrawals
If a student needs to withdraw from a class, they must notify the school no later than four business days before the start of class in order to receive full refund (less copyrighted materials of our partners, ie. text books ($49 retail), ebooks ($39 retail) and software including but not limited to CompuCram and Rockstar Math Review as those cannot be returned or reused). Accessing the Litmos self-paced coursework results in a 50% refund reduction regardless of advance notice of cancellation. For cancellations that are made in less than four days before the start of class, the school will retain 50% of tuition. Transfer requests made outside of the four day cancellation period may be subject to a $30 rescheduling fee and all balances must be paid prior to reserving a spot in a future session. Failure to log in to a live-stream session or alert the school with at least 24 hours’ notice of an absence will result in a full forfeiture of your tuition. All refunds will be processed within 30 days from the day of that particular class date. Credit card refunds can take between 7-10 days to credit your accounts, according to our Merchant Processing Companies; please wait the full period before contacting us to follow up. We will email you proof of credit, as standard policy.
It is at the sole discretion of Host Group to consider modification of any of our cancellation/refund policies to fit unique circumstances.
Rescheduling / Making Up Hours
Rescheduling: If a student needs to reschedule a class (including live- streamed webinars and make-up hours), we request that they notify the school no later than four business days before the start of the session. Failure to show up for class with less than 24 hours’ notice will result in a full forfeiture of your tuition and forfeiture of right to future transfers.
Making Up Hours: Class hours are mandated by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, so students will not receive credit for the class if they do not complete the full number of hours. All make-up hours must be completed within 60 days of the missed session. If you need to miss a portion of a class, please let us know in advance and contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a time to make up the hours. Make-up sessions are based on availability and will either take place in a future online streaming session or during online office hours. It is at the sole discretion of Host Group to consider modification of any of our rescheduling/make-up policies to fit unique circumstances.
No-shows and late cancellations (less than 24 hours notice) for online appointments for make-up hours are subject to a $30 rescheduling/ late cancellation fee. “No-Show” includes late cancellations (less than 24 hours) OR not showing up at all OR arriving 30+ minutes late for your scheduled time. All fees must be paid prior to course completion and a certification booklet will NOT be issued until all account fees are paid.
Textbooks & Proprietary Information
Instructions for accessing Ebooks will be sent the week of class. Textbooks that are purchased through Host Group will be mailed within 2 business days (please allow 3-5 days for delivery). Textbooks cannot be returned and are not eligible for refunds or exchanges. If you have received advance materials via email (including but not limited to Litmos, CompuCram and the Rockstar Math Review) and then cancel your registration, the value will be deducted from any refunds as these materials are proprietary in nature and are intended for our paying/attending students. In addition, our Salesperson and Brokers ebooks retail for $39.00, hard copies $49.00, and Mortgage Pre-licensing materials start at $65.00; all prices include shipping and are subject to change.
Students who purchased Host Group Real Estate vouchers through social buying websites such as LivingSocial, Groupon, or Boston Deals are subject to the policies defined by these third party suppliers. LivingSocial will provide a refund if you change your mind within five days after you've purchased your voucher and want to 'return' the unused voucher. After that, LivingSocial will not provide refunds except that they will provide a refund if you are unable to redeem a voucher because the merchant has gone out of business. Host Group's standard policies for cancellation do not apply; if we receive advance notification that you cannot attend a session we will attempt to transfer you into a future online session to complete the required hours (40 Hours), subject to availability within the voucher deadline. Host Group will not refund any Social Buying vouchers. Seat reservations using these vouchers are based on availability and are not guaranteed. All course hours must be completed by the deadline on Social Buying voucher. Each outstanding class session is subject to a $30 rescheduling fee after the voucher deadline.
Additional Policies :
We are currently not offering a payment plan; please check back soon.
All tuition costs are subject to change. Prices as of January 2021 are as follows: RE Salesperson Pre-licensing and Broker Pre-Licensing $997; MLO plus SAFE MA $997.
No recordings or distribution of pre-recorded materials is permitted at any time in any capacity without express written consent of Host Group.
There is a No-Refund and No-Exchange Policy once a student has logged on to an Online Course, or a self-paced online Course has been opened. On the rare occasion that the State may pull approval of a certain course before the student has completed the course, our staff is not required to notify the student of the same, and when contacted by the student, our staff will do our best to work with the student by allowing a discount on a subsequent course. Distance education courses include instructional support by Host
Group instructors and students are encouraged to reach out to us via email with any questions or concerns at email@example.com.
Host Group is not affiliated with PSI Testing Centers. State exam registration and fees are the student’s responsibility and are completely separate from Host Group Real Estate Academy’s tuition. A student handbook including the exam application will be emailed prior to the first day of class with more information regarding scheduling your exam. If you would prefer a hard copy of the application packet to be mailed to you, it may be subject to a $30 fee (including shipping).
The school will not close due to inclement weather. If you need to withdraw from a class due to weather issues, you must alert the school no less than 24 hours before the start of class in order to transfer into another class of equal value. Failure to alert the school within 24 hours of the start of class may result in a full forfeiture of your tuition.
