Arkansas Real Estate School Mission Statement
Arkansas Real Estate School, Inc., a real estate education institution committed to providing affordable high-quality courses, instructional materials, and student services that are easy for students to access and use. Our goal is to present students with information necessary to pass the state licensure exam and provide ongoing education which not only meets Arkansas Real Estate Commission requirements, but also provides them with practical skills training. To achieve this goal, ARES ensures all courses provide clear learning outcomes, current information, interactive experiences, and assessment to facilitate student success.
Arkansas Real Estate School, Inc. provides self-paced online distance education. Students may register and complete these courses on any computer meeting the technical requirements covered in this catalog. Students may have access to the course at any time and may work at their own pace. See Online Education Policies Below
Full attendance for the designated clock hours for each course is required to receive a certificate of completion. Absences may be made up the next time a course is offered, space permitting. Students who miss more than 15 minutes of an hour will be required to make up the entire hour during another course, space permitting. Hours may not be transferred from other schools nor from self-paced learning. Students have one year (12 months) from the date of original class start date to comply with AREC regulations obtaining the sixty (60) clock hours or the student will be dropped and need to complete the course again.
Real Estate Education certificates are awarded only to students that comply with Arkansas Real Estate Commission regulations requiring student attendance and participation.
