What is the J.Y. Monk Commitment?

The J.Y. Monk Commitment - Real Estate Education Guarantee

Passing the prelicensing course and licensing exam is not easy. It takes a serious amount of time, money, and effort. That’s the inspiration behind The J.Y. Monk Commitment.

When you make the decision to start your new career journey at Kaplan, formerly J.Y. Monk Real Estate School, we match your commitment. To qualify for the J.Y. Monk Commitment, students must do the following:

  • Attend 100% of your Kaplan Real Estate Prelicensing Course
  • Complete and pass (75%) all online homework assignments prior to taking the final exam. The homework assignments include the unit quizzes, a midterm exam, settlement problems, and a sample exam.
  • Complete the exam prep course, attempt the online pre-test, and score 75% or better on the online post-test. 
  • Take the initial final exam and, if needed, the retake exam. Good-faith exam attempts are required.

If you meet these requirements, we will ensure your success. If you fail your prelicensing final exam or state licensing exam, you can retake your prelicensing course and/or exam prep course for up to six months, free of charge. It’s that simple.

Kaplan's courses are designed to help you pass your exam, and we dedicate ourselves to providing the education you need to be successful the first time. Our prelicensing packages include access to our exam prep course at no additional charge, allowing you to review topics that may be giving you difficulty. If you take advantage of the tools included with your tuition and do not pass the course, 100% of your next enrollment is on us with The J.Y. Monk Commitment

Trust your real estate education to the school as committed to your success as you are...Kaplan Real Estate Education, formerly J.Y. Monk.
