Features that Set VanEd Online Real Estate School Apart in Colorado
Most VanEd real estate licensing courses are eligible for a 5-day free trial enrollment. Unlike other online real estate schools, we don't hide our courses until after you pay. The ability to explore with no commitment is unique to VanEd, and is the best way for you to understand how our online courses can work for you. All of your work is saved in the free trial and available to you once you decide to purchase!
VanEd is confident that if you are successful in our coursework, you will pass both portions of the Colorado real estate licensing exam on your first try. And while most pass guarantees refund only your state exam fee, VanEd is willing to back it up with a full money-back guarantee!
But what does that mean to our students?
Student success is our top priority. VanEd’s course is self-paced, but requires disciplined study and successful completion of all assignments/assessments. Based on our instructor’s experience, our pass guarantee is restricted to students who spend at least 7 weeks working through the 168 hours, and take the Colorado real estate license exam within 11 weeks of enrollment. This time restriction is in place to:
- Ensure that students devote enough attention to each module in order to be fully prepared.
- Confirm that upon completion students take the Colorado real estate license exam in an acceptable timeframe to retain all the information required to pass.
VanEd will refund the entire cost of the pre-licensing program (minus processing fees), to any student that fails either portion of the Colorado real estate licensing exam under these guidelines.
How do I qualify for a money-back refund?
For our Advantage and Premium 168 credit hour students, if you fail the Colorado real estate license exam on your first attempt within 7 - 11 weeks from initial registration:
- Provide us with a copy of your PSI exam result.
- Speak with an instructor and review the course material in order to re-take and pass VanEd's course and summary exams.
- Re-take the Colorado real estate license exam.
- Upon our receipt of your Colorado real estate license exam results, we will refund you the entire course fee.
You will remain active in our program so that you may continue to review, and will also be contacted by an instructor who will provide a detailed study plan to ensure that your next attempt is a success. This program is available for our Advantage and Premium 168 hour program only, and is not available on individual courses or other packages at this time.
How can VanEd provide this guarantee?
With our knowledge of the CO real estate licensing requirements, an unmatched level of instruction and program support, and with over 17 years of online instruction, we know that if you follow our program you WILL succeed. Our confidence in your success stems from our experience in real estate education.
Our faculty represents more than 100 years in real estate education, and our program and systems will teach you not only how to pass the Colorado real estate license exam, but also how to succeed in the field. We are the oldest and largest online real estate school in Colorado and one of the oldest real estate schools in the country. We can help you get to where you want to be.

VanEd’s academic advisor is here to help students in their educational development while students are pursuing their new profession in real estate. VanEd’s academic advisor will proactively contact student advisees on a regular basis to help track course progress, ensure students are on the right path, and answer any questions along the way!
Real estate textbooks still have their place and can support and supplement your online learning. Our Colorado Principles and Practices course is supported by a textbook that is included in the price of the course and will be shipped to you immediately after purchase for free.
Optional Printed and/or Electronic Workbooks
VanEd has prepared supplemental workbooks which complement the online coursework in a convenient, printed and bound format. Our workbooks contain summaries of each topic, additional review, and practice questions to help you prepare for your licensing exam. Workbooks are optional, and are available during checkout for an additional fee that includes shipping within the Continental U.S.
All Colorado real estate licensing courses include eBooks (PDF) which are the full text of the online course. You may print or download these files and study offline at your convenience.
All our Colorado real estate licensing course packages include the appropriate module of our exam prep course included in the package price. The exam prep courses summarize the coursework and provide plenty of practice taking exams tailored to match the Colorado real estate state license exam. Learn more about our Colorado exam prep courses.
Our 168 credit hour package also includes a free professional development course to help get your new career off to a fast start.
All Colorado licensing courses are 100% online and can be completed from the comfort of your home or office. Our online systems are efficient and reliable, and will never get in the way of your learning experience.
We strive to provide interactivity in every course in the form of quizzes, exams, and exercises. These activities reinforce your knowledge, let you practice specific skills, and help to make the courses more enjoyable.
Each course also contains a variety of exercies, quizzes, infographics, videos, case studies, and interactive elements that help reinforce learning in a fun and effective manner.
