The Association of REALTORS® School requests that students, instructors, staff, and visitors present in the classroom be aware of the following policies when registering for and attending the school’s courses.

  1. Class Size: A maximum class size is established for all courses. Class size is determined by the facility resources and course design—“over booking” is not possible. You are encouraged to register as soon as possible to assure a space in the course(s) you want. We do not maintain waiting lists.
  2. Payments: May be made by check, money order, Telecheck, or credit card (Visa/MasterCard/American Express) and are due in advance of class. Credit Card payments may be made over the phone or online.
  3. Attendance: All classes begin promptly when scheduled. Admission to class will cease 15 minutes after the scheduled start. Students leaving the classroom except during designated breaks or for emergencies are subject to loss of educational credit. Excessive abuse of this policy may result in dismissal from class without any financial or educational credit. Partial credits are not possible and full credits are earned for attendance of the entire class day regardless of credit hours granted.
  4. Electronic Devices: Students must turn off all electronic devices except for those being used for accessing course resources. All electronic devices should be set to silent during class.
  5. Audio/Video Recording & Photography: 
    • Audio or visual recording, of any kind, is strictly prohibited without express written permission, in advance, from the Association of REALTORS® School.
      • This includes recording and transcriptions via Artificial Intelligence.
    • Still images are permitted with the express permission of the instructor. This permission, when obtained, allows photography of the instructor and the instructor’s use of projection screens only. It does not grant permission to take photos of other attendees.
      • Still images taken of the instructor and the instructor’s use of projection screens is for student’s reference use only. Sharing in any format or medium is prohibited.
    • Attendees may take still images documenting their attendance at a class or course. Students are strictly prohibited from taking photos of other students without explicit consent of the other students.
  6. The Association of REALTORS® School believes in competition and abides with all antitrust laws which make it unlawful for competitors to agree to anti-competitive practices. All students, instructors, staff and visitors present in the classroom should be mindful to AVOID any discussion that, intentionally or tacitly, seeks to:
    • Fix or establish commission rates.
    • Standardize or fix compensation between cooperating brokers.
    • Agreeing to a set of agency practices.
    • Agreeing to exclude broker(s) from the general policy of compensating cooperating brokers.
    • Agreeing to boycott affiliated industry services.
  7. Cancellation Policy: Association of REALTORS® School reserves the right to cancel classes due to insufficient enrollment or inclement weather. In the case of inclement weather students are instructed to call 610-560-4900 for instructions from either a staff member or via voicemail.
  8. Refund Policy: Refunds minus a $25 cancellation charge will be made provided written notice is received three days prior to the course date and no refunds are issued after the start of class.

Harassment: It is the policy of the School that all students, instructors and employees shall have the opportunity to learn and work in an atmosphere and environment free from any form of harassment or retaliation based on race, color, religion, gender, sex, national origin, age, or disability. Such forms of harassment or retaliation constitute discrimination under various state and federal laws and will not be tolerated by the School.
