Terms and Conditions

(Please read the following carefully, there will be no exceptions)

The New York State Department and the New York State Department of Financial Services have set mandatory attendance policies for all classes Leap Edu offers. Each course requires a specific amount of hours, sections, and modules to be fulfilled. Students must fulfill these necessary requirements to receive full credit. If these specific hours, sections, and modules are not attended, the students will not be permitted to take school exams and/or will not be eligible for a completion certificate. 

For classes approved by NYS Department of State for continuing education, including the NYS 75 Hour Real Estate Salesperson class, all instructors hold a Licensed Real Estate Instructor license issued by New York State Department of State.

Students must begin the course within the terms of their chosen payment package. Failure to start the course within the terms of the chosen payment package will result in an extension fee of $100 for Leap Package enrolled students or $50 for Leap Plus package enrolled students.  The extension will begin from the current cycle up to the next consecutive session. Failure to start within the current or next consecutive session will result in forfeiture of all fees paid.

Leap EDU follows the rules and regulations of attendance monitoring mandated by the New York State Department of State. . 

Instructors take attendance at the start of class and after any scheduled breaks. For any live distance education sessions (any class being offered remotely), all students must have a camera and microphone, along with a strong internet connection. Students must activate their cameras and microphones during attendance and whenever prompted by the instructor. Students failing to activate their cameras and microphones during attendance and when prompted by the instructor will lose credit for the class session. Virtual classrooms automatically time-stamped all entries and exits from the classroom. 

Students arriving late or leaving early 20 minutes or more to an individual course or a module within a course will not receive credit for the course or the module. 

Students taking an unauthorized break (beyond designated break times) for 20 minutes or more during a course or module within a course will not receive credit for the course or module. Students automatically removed from a live-distance course session for not responding to the Presence Manager will lose credit for the class. 

If lateness, leaving early, and unauthorized breaks add up to more than 20 minutes during an individual course or module within a course, the student will not receive credit for the course or module. 

The same principles apply for each day of a multi-day course. Students losing credit for one day of a multi-day course will not receive credit for the entire course. 

Students missing more than two modules of the NY State 75 Hour Real Estate Salesperson course will not be eligible to take the school exam, nor be eligible for a completion certificate. 

No exceptions will be made, as exceptions will violate the rules and regulations mandated by New York State Department of State. 

No refunds or school credit will be issued for any course that a student was denied credit due to lateness, unauthorized breaks, removal from a virtual classroom for not responding to Presence Manager, or removal from a virtual or in-person classroom due to poor conduct. 

Students must complete a minimum 18 out of the 20 modules within the deadline terms of the payment package purchased, and receive a passing grade (65% or better) on the school exam.

If a student is within their completion deadline of their chosen payment package, they will be allowed to repeat classes without incurring any fees.
