Academic Dishonesty and Plagiarism
Areas of academic dishonesty include cheating, impersonation, and communicating with or assisting another student during an exam.
Plagiarism involves representing words or ideas of others as one’s own.
Impersonation may involve having a person attempt to write or to write an exam on someone else’s behalf.
These activities will not be tolerated and in the event of any incident, irregularity, or evidence of academic dishonesty, MREA will take any necessary and appropriate action, which could include referring the matter to The Manitoba Securities Commission (MSC) if the individual is a registrant or is applying for registration under The Real Estate Services Act.
MREA is committed to providing an environment that is inclusive and free of barriers. Course accommodation requests are assessed on a case-by-case basis to ensure equal opportunity for all students to fully demonstrate their qualifications.
Students requesting accommodations are required to provide MREA with correspondence from a registered health professional outlining the documented disability.
Accommodations are granted on an individual basis and are dependent on the nature and extent of the request, documentation provided and requirements of the exam. However, submitting a request does not guarantee receiving accommodation.
Prior to the program’s expiry date, students may purchase a one-time extension, for $300.00, plus GST. The duration of the extension is specific to the program/course in which students are enrolled. Students requesting extensions must complete and submit the Course Extension Request form along with the required fee to the MREA for consideration.
Extension requests for medical reasons or other extenuating circumstances where documentation is provided will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Granting of an extension will be at the sole discretion of the MREA.
Students requiring extensions are asked to contact the MREA office at 204.772.0405 or email email@example.com.
Prices and policies are subject to change.
MREA adheres to and abides by the principles set out in the CREA Privacy Code and the Canadian federal privacy legislation. MREA is therefore dedicated to maintaining high standards of confidentiality with respect to information provided.
MREA uses the personal information provided verbally or in writing by students upon application for enrolment into education courses (and which may be provided during the period of enrolment) to fulfill its mandate of administering real estate education courses in Manitoba.
Personal information about students will include
- Telephone number
- Email address
- Exam results
MREA will not discuss student education files, status, history or any other education-related information with anyone other than the student and the MSC.
MREA retains personal information as long as MREA believes it is necessary to fulfill the purpose for which it was collected.
In registering for an education course offered by MREA, a student consents to the above-mentioned collection, use, retention, and dissemination of personal information.
Withdrawals and Refunds
To withdraw from a course after enrolment a student must request and complete a Course Withdrawal Form within 30 days (including weekends and holidays) after enrolment and the student will be entitled to a refund of the course registration fee less the administration costs. Course withdrawals, due to medical reasons, after the 30-day period are considered on a case-by-case basis, if accompanied by a medical note.
Refunds will be processed in a timely manner; either to the original credit card on which the funds were paid or by cheque to be received within two to three weeks.
To be eligible for a refund, the unmarked course materials must be returned to the MREA office at the student’s expense along with the completed Course Withdrawal Form. The return package must contain the student’s name, address, and student identification number.
Exam fees are invoiced independently for accounting purposes only. Exam fees are included in the course registration fees and are not refundable.
If a student wishes to keep the course material, this should be indicated on the withdrawal form and the cost of the course materials and the administration fee will be deducted from the refund.
There will be no refund if an assignment booklet has been completed, even if the request to withdraw is within the 30-day time frame.
Transferring of course enrolment or materials from one individual to another is not permitted; individuals must enroll and purchase their own materials.
