We Guarantee that your test score will improve by at least one point …

However, if your official test score is identical to, or lower than, your “Starting Score” (defined below), you can choose to reprep for the identical test with The Princeton Review (“TPR”), at no cost 1 or get your money back 2 .

How do I qualify for a free prep course OR get my money back?

  • You must be a Princeton Review student who is enrolled in an eligible program, which has been paid in full.
  • You must complete all components of the eligible program in which you are enrolled.
  • You must take the official test for which you prepped on the test date immediately following the final session of your eligible program. Additional requirements for the following test types include:
    • For GMAT, GRE and DAT, you must take the official test within 30 days of the final session of your program.
    • For MCAT, you must take the official test within two testing windows from the final session of your program.
  • Within 30 days of official test scores being released, you must provide to us your official test score and submit the form to either reprep for free with TPR or receive your money back.

  • The score received on the official test that was administered no more than six months prior to the start of your first TPR test prep program for the identical test; or
  • The score you receive on your first practice test in your first test prep program with TPR that is for the identical test.
