Better Scores Guarantee

If your score does not improve, you have the option to prep one more time with us for free or to get your money back.

How do I qualify?

You are a Princeton Review student enrolled in an eligible program which has been paid in full.

How do I redeem my guarantee?

You must complete your program and take the official test on the next official test date following the final session of your program.

  • 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 scores being released, you must share your official score with us and tell us whether you want to repeat the same program one more time for free or get your money back instead.

What constitutes “completing” a program?

You must do the following within the schedule required for your program:

  • Attend all class sessions *
  • Take all assigned tests
  • Complete all assigned homework

*For MCAT courses you also must have enrolled in and completed the 18-hour Psychology and Sociology Online Module prior to taking the official test.

How do we determine if you didn't score higher?

You must establish a Starting Score prior to starting your program.

  • If you have taken an official test no more than six months prior to starting your Princeton Review program, your official test score will be your Starting Score.
  • If you have not taken the official test within six months of starting your Princeton Review program, your Starting Score is the result of your first practice test in our program.
  • We will compare your Starting Score with your official score on test day.

As a part of our Better Scores Guarantee, we guarantee a specific point improvement for certain programs as set out below.

*For the above specific point and score guarantees, before qualifying for the money back, you must prep with us again and re-take the official test. If your score still does not improve, you will qualify for a refund. A Princeton Review Advisor will work with you to find the best online option for re-prepping.

1 For purposes of the Better Scores Guarantee, "SAT" refers to the SAT format still being administered by the College Board as of September 1, 2015 and "New SAT" refers to the SAT format that will be administered starting in March 2016. If you take the November 2015 or December 2015 SAT test, your repeat course will be the Live Online Refresher Course or the Ultimate LiveOnline for the SAT or, at your option, the New SAT Ultimate LiveOnline. If you take the January 2016 SAT, your repeat course will be the New SAT Ultimate LiveOnline.

How do I exercise my guarantee?

After completing your program, if your score did not improve and you want to prep with us again or get your money back, complete this form. Upon receipt a Princeton Review Advisor will contact you to develop a plan of action and get you registered in a new program for the next administration of the test or provide you with a refund.

For students wishing to repeat an Immersion or Honors program, a Princeton Review Advisor will work with you to find an option that best suits your needs up to and including our Ultimate course. 2

For students wishing to repeat our Semi-private (Small Group) courses, a Princeton Review Advisor will work with you to find an option that best suits your needs up to and including the classroom version of the course in which you originally enrolled. 2

You must contact us within 30 days of getting your scores back to be eligible for these options. If you choose to repeat your program, you will not be eligible to get your money back. Please note that it may take up to 30 days to process your refund.

2 Due to limited availability of Immersion, Honors and Semi-private (Small Group) courses, the options available will not include Immersion, Honors and Semi-private (Small Group) programs.

Materials Fees

Students who choose to prep again with us and need new materials will have to pay a materials fee (plus shipping and handling charges). This fee varies by test type: $50 for High School products, $199 for GMAT, GRE, DAT, OAT and LSAT and $299 for MCAT.

The Princeton Review Promise

For students who prep with us and don't feel ready to take the test OR have a score improvement and want to score even more, a Princeton Review Advisor will be on hand to work with you to develop a plan of action and determine best next steps.

For students seeking a greater score improvement, complete this form and send us your official score report within 30 days of getting your scores back.

For students who do not feel ready for the test, complete this form within 30 days of your last class session.
