TERMS & CONDITIONS
Welcome to Kapre.com (the “Site”), which is operated by Brightwood Real Estate Education a division of Education Corporation of America (“Brightwood” “ECA,” “we,” “school,” or “us”). Your use of the Site is only on the condition that you agree to abide by the following terms:
Attendance Policy for eLearning courses
Attendance and participation have proven to be key factors in accomplishing the learning objectives set forth in your course. Attendance for eLearning is activated through your login and your documentable participation (actively progressing through noted milestones and progress markers). Upon purchase, you will have access to the course for six months. You are expected to log in to the Learning Management System and complete the required work noted in the course outline. This also applies to those supplemental live courses, that are part of the correspondence program. Supplemental live classes are meant to augment the eLearning or correspondence course. Completion or attendance in the supplemental live courses do not satisfy the course requirements. To complete the program, you must complete the course work and pass the final exam or assessment. Failure to do so can result in your course access expiring. Upon completion of the course, students will receive a completion certificate.
Attendance Policy for Regulated Live Classes
Attendance in our Live Classes is defined as a student physically attending a live classroom on the enrolled/registered dates and times. We track attendance through rosters and sign in sheets. Classroom coordinators or instructors are responsible for collecting attendance information. The faculty member supervises the attendance process at each class. You are expected to attend the course for which you are registered and to remain in class for its complete duration.
For Minnesota, there is an 100% attendance requirement for all Regulated Live classes. Students in the Pre-Licensing courses can make up incomplete hours in half-day sessions in another live class offering. For Continuing Education classes, students must attend in the time they registered, in its entirety. There is no make-up provision given their short duration. If a student misses time in a CE class, they can be transferred to another course offering and must attend the entire session, fulfilling the 100% attendance requirement.
For New Mexico, there is a 90% attendance requirement for all Regulated Live classes. Students not able to meet the attendance requirement can make up that class session at the next available offering. Once that time is made up, the attendance will be entered and they will be eligible to receive their certificate of completion.
For North Carolina, there is an 80% attendance requirement for Pre-license classes and a 90% attendance requirement for Post License and Continuing Education classes. Students unable to meet the attendance requirements will not be eligible to take the final exam and will be considered withdrawn from the course. Withdrawn students can re-peat the course within 12 months by
registering for the course and paying a 139-dollar fee. Repeats are subject to the same attendance requirement.
For Colorado, there is a 100% attendance requirement for Regulated Appraisal Live classes (this includes Licensing and Continuing Education). Likewise, Real Estate Continuing Education also has a 100% attendance requirement. Students not able to meet the attendance requirement for the Appraisal program can make up the time missed during the next scheduled session. However, the certificate of completion will be held until all the attendance requirements have been met.
For Texas, there is a 100% attendance requirement for Real Estate Continuing Education. If you cannot meet the time requirements, you will not receive a course completion certificate. However, you can reschedule to attend a different day, but you must complete the attendance requirements on that day, for Continuing Education.
It’s important to note that we offer supplemental live real estate pre-licensing courses in California, Colorado and Texas. However, these courses fall under the eLearning attendance policy since they approved correspondence courses. Attendance and course work for these courses are monitored through the learning management system. Students must meet the attendance and course requirements to complete the course. Upon completion of the course, students will receive a completion certificate.

Colorado Division of Private Occupational Schools
Refunds will be provided within 30 days of termination date provided the following conditions are satisfied. Termination date is the date the school receives written or verbal notice of a student’s intention to terminate or cancel his/her enrollment, or the date on which the student violates the published attendance policy. For all courses and programs, the school will pay a full refund of all tuition and fees paid by a prospective student if: (1) a prospective student is not accepted by the school; (2) for classroom courses and programs, within three days after initial payment a student notifies the school of his or her intention to terminate the enrollment, provided that training has not started; (3) for correspondence courses and programs, within three days after initial payment a student notifies the school of his or her intention to terminate the enrollment; or (4) the school discontinues a course during the period of time within which a student could reasonably have completed the course as defined in the Standard of Progress above. Refunds called for by provision (5) shall not apply in the event that the school ceases operation.
For classroom courses and programs, the school will pay a full refund of tuition and fees paid less a cancellation charge (not to exceed $150) of 20% of the tuition for the course(s) the student is terminating when terminated more than 3 days after the date of enrollment but before training has started. “Training” for correspondence courses and programs commences on the date of enrollment, so refund requests made more than 3 days after date of enrollment for correspondence courses are subject to the policy below.
For refund requests and terminations made more than 3 days after initial enrollment or after training has commenced, we will retain a cancellation charge of 20% of the tuition (but not to exceed $150.00) for all courses and then pay a refund based on the following policies. Note that this cancellation charge does not apply to the full refund conditions described above, or to refunds under the Veterans Refund Policy set forth separately below. The refund percentages described here shall be applied to full tuition and fees actually paid by the student after deducting the cancellation charge, and not to books. If a student discontinues training or is terminated by the school, the following refund will be made to the student within 30 days of official determination of the termination date (the date on which the school receives written or verbal notice of a student’s intention to discontinue training, or the date on which the student violates the published attendance policy). Refunds will be calculated as follows:
|A student terminating training…||is entitled to a refund of…|
|Within first 10% of program||90% refund less cancellation charge|
|After 10% but within 25% of program||75% refund less cancellation charge|
|After 25% but within 50% of program||50% refund less cancellation charge|
|After 50% but within 75% of program||25% refund less cancellation charge|
After 75% completed
(if paid in full, no cancellation charge is applicable)
Completion percentages will be determined by the number of classroom sessions attended, the number of correspondence lesson quizzes returned (if applicable), or the number of correspondence lessons that should have been completed beginning on the date of initial payment, according to the “lessons per week” standard shown for the satisfactory standards progress described above.
For continuing education courses, after three days from enrollment students will not receive a refund but students will be given credit toward another course of the student’s choosing. Credit can be used for up to one year from the date of enrollment. Books and materials provided for all courses and programs must be returned to the school before any refund can be issued and are not separately refundable. However, if a student cancels and fails to return the course materials, the cost of these materials will be deducted from the total refund given to the student. The charge for books and materials will be based on the tuition fee charged for the equivalent self-study (correspondence) material. No refund is made for shipping or tax charges. Any materials which cannot be re-used will not be refunded. Retail books purchased from our bookstore that have not been opened or used may be returned for a full refund for up to 30 days from the date of purchase.
Postponement of a starting date, whether at the request of the school or the student, requires a written agreement signed by the student and the school. The agreement must set forth: (a) Whether the postponement is for the convenience of the school or the student, and (b) A deadline for the new start date, beyond which the start date will not be postponed. If the course is not commenced, or the student fails to attend by the new start date set forth in the agreement, the student will be entitled to an appropriate refund of prepaid tuition and fees within 30 days of the deadline of the new start date set forth in the agreement, determined in accordance with the school’s refund policy and all applicable laws and rules concerning the Private Occupational Education Act of 1981.
