General DRE Information (QE)
Date and Location: Not Applicable (Correspondence with Online Quizzes and Exams Courses)
Method of Course Presentation:
All of Allied’s qualifying education courses are correspondence with online quizzes and exams.
The more courses you enroll in, the lower the tuition for each course (see table below).
DRE mandates students taking these courses online must spend a minimum of 18 days per course, beginning from the day of enrollment, before each final exam will unlock. Courses may be completed according to the minimum time frames listed below:
Allied provides its students with a full one-year enrollment term so if any final exam is not successfully completed within these parameters, re-enrollment in the incomplete course would be required in order to receive credit and a Certificate of Completion for that course. Re-enrollment fees apply.
Each course is a correspondence course that consists of comprehensive text reading, either online via PDFs or from hardcopy textbooks. Optional, but strongly suggested, review quizzes accompanies each chapter. Each course concludes with a mandatory 100-question open-book, multiple-choice final exam, which will be graded for competency. Final exams are 3 hours long and a score of 70% or higher must be achieved in order to receive a Certificate of Completion. You may retake the final exam if you do not receive a passing score; however DRE requires an 18-day moratorium before doing so.
When you are ready to take your final exam, go to http://iboard.alliedschools.com, Click the “final exam” link that is posted on the left side of your screen. Immediately before the administration of the final examination you must provide one of the following forms of identification: current California driver’s license; current identification card described in Section 13000 of the California Vehicle Code; or, any identification of the participant issued by a governmental agency or a recognized real estate related trade organization within the immediately preceding five years which bears a photograph, signature and identification number of the participant. Read each question and click the circle next to the answer you select. When you are finished click “SUBMIT” to see your score. If you have not completed the exam after the 3-hour timeframe is up, the exam will stop, and it will be graded as is. The exam cannot be downloaded, printed, or copied.
Students may cancel an enrollment and request a full refund for any reason up to 7 calendar days from the date of enrollment.* The refund/cancellation request must be made before midnight on the 7th day. Completed courses are not eligible for a refund. Please go to http://www.alliedschools.com/support. to request a cancellation and refund.
*Online Instructor-Led Mortgage Licensing course refunds are prorated based on assignments completed.
