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

If you happen to fail your first exam, you will have at least one additional exams to attempt. If you deplete all the attempts included with your course, you may be allowed to purchase an exam reset. There is a $50 fee to have final exams reset, which will keep the course progression as is, and simply provide you more attempts to complete the course with the course final. Please contact Student Support at 866.739.7277 or via email at realestateexpresssupport@expressschools.com for additional assistance with processing. Some states do require students to retake the course if they do not pass any of the exam attempts.
