What if I don’t get a passing score on the final examination?

If you’ve gone through the real estate course as indicated and taken the quizzes and practice exams that followed, you should have no trouble passing the final real estate exam with at least the minimum required score. You can also ask your instructor for help via the Forum or directly by email.

At the end of the course you will take the course final exam, which by law and/or state regulation you must pass with a minimum score in order to receive your certificate of completion.

If you happen to fail your first exam, you will have at least one, maybe two, additional exams to attempt. If you deplete all the attempts included with your course, you may be allowed to purchase an exam reset for $50.00 depending on your state regulations. Some states do require students to retake the course if they do not pass any of the exam attempts. If your state allows you to retake the exam, there is a $50.00 fee for manually resetting your final exam in this manner should you need it, but it can be done when you request this service from Student Support by phone at 866-739-7277.

Here’s how many final exam attempts each state allows:

  • Two attempts allowed: California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Nevada, New York, Oklahoma, Texas and Washington
  • Three attempts allowed: Alabama, Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Missouri, Tennessee and Virginia
  • Four attempts allowed: Pennsylvania
  • Unlimited attempts allowed: Mississippi and Montana
