Read about each subject area's PassProtection policy below.

Insurance and Securities Licensing 

Kaplan Professional Education is confident that you will pass your Securities or Insurance Licensing Exam after taking our Live Class. However, in the event that you were unsuccessful in passing your exam, or simply wish to take the class again, please contact our Student Support team at 800.824.8742. You may retake the same class, subject to the conditions described herein, within your access period.

All enrollments under the PassProtection™ program are subject to space availability in the requested class. Web-based courses or classes may be substituted for live classes at our discretion. PassProtection™ enrollments are limited to your product’s access period.  If you want to extend your access period for an additional amount of study time, fees may apply and a new PassProtection™ Retake term will begin.

For more information, please call Student Support at 800.824.8742.

CFP® Certification

You are eligible for PassProtection if you purchase a Live Review Study Solution. If you do not pass the CFP® exam after purchasing a Live Review Study Solution, you will receive a free subsequent Live Review Study Solution within a one-year window of time (three exam cycles).

To be eligible, you must submit your Official Score Report to fpexamresults@kaplan.com within three weeks of receiving it from CFP Board. All exam results will remain confidential.
