Q. How does The Princeton Review Guarantee work?

A. To use The Princeton Review Guarantee, you must meet the eligibility criteria outlined below. Not sure if you do? Don’t worry—we can help you figure it out. To speak with a representative, call 1-800-865-7737.

Q. Who is eligible for The Princeton Review Guarantee?

A. To be eligible for The Princeton Review Guarantee, you must be enrolled in a Princeton Review Eligible Program, which has been paid in full.

Q. How do I get my money back?

A. To qualify, you must 

  • For classes and Comprehensive Tutoring Packages, attend all of your class or tutoring sessions, take all of the assigned tests and do all of your homework.
  • For Self-Paced programs, take at least 4 practice tests.
  • For GMAT Connect, take at least 4 practice tests and complete 1 tutoring session.
  • For GMAT Connect Plus, take at least 4 practice tests and complete all tutoring sessions.

You need to take the official test within 90 days after your class ends or after your last tutoring session, or for Self-Paced (including MCAT Self-Paced), GMAT Connect, and GMAT Connect Plus students only, within 90 days of the termination of your Online Student Portal access. If you’re an MCAT student (other than a Self-Paced student), you need to take the official test within two testing windows from the end of your class or tutoring sessions.  Send us your official test score and fill out the form  here .

If you qualify and your score did not improve, we’ll refund your tuition.

You have 1 year from your last course or tutoring session or, for Self-Paced, GMAT Connect, and GMAT Connect Plus students only, 1 year from the termination of your Online Student Portal access, to request your money back.

Q. If I’m not satisfied, how can I repeat my program?

A. Within 90 days of your last course or tutoring session or, for Self-Paced, GMAT Connect, and GMAT Connect Plus students only, within 90 days of the termination of your Online Student Portal access, call 1-800-865-7737 or fill out the form  here to arrange to repeat the program for free.

The program must be in the same test type as what you originally enrolled in and of an equal or lesser value. Add-on tutoring is not a repeat option.

You have one year from invoking your guarantee to repeat your program.

Q. Is there anything else I need to know?

A. Students can only use The Princeton Review Guarantee once per paid purchase. For example, if you choose to repeat the program, you will no longer be eligible for your money back.

If you’re enrolled in an MCAT course, you also must have enrolled in and completed the 21-hour Psychology and Sociology Online Module prior to taking the official test to be eligible to get your money back.

If you choose to get your money back, shipping charges are not refunded.

* Students who purchased Comprehensive Tutoring Packages are eligible to get their money back or repeat their tutoring package if their official scores do not improve. See information below on score improvement. If a student is not satisfied with his or her tutor after the first session, we’ll find him or her a better match and one session of tutoring will be added to their plan at no cost. Students are not eligible for a free repeat in their Comprehensive Tutoring Program if they are not satisfied. The 10-hour Private Tutoring Package is not eligible for the money back or tutor match guarantee.

The maximum refund amounts are $99 for ACT and SAT Self-Paced and $299 for ACT and SAT Self-Paced Plus. ACT or SAT Self-Paced purchases prior to January 2, 2018 are covered by the guarantee in effect at the time of purchase. Please call 1-800-865-7737 with questions.

SAT Subject Tests, AP, SSAT, SHSAT, ISEE, and TOEFL 18-hour Comprehensive Private Tutoring Packages: If you're not 100% satisfied with your tutor after the first session, we'll find you a better match—and you'll get another session, on us. These packages are not eligible for the money back guarantee.

Q. How do we determine if your score* improved?

A. At the beginning of your program, we’ll establish a baseline starting score that we will use to determine if your score improved.

Your starting score can be either:

  • Your official test score that was received no more than 90 days before the start of your first Princeton Review test prep program for the identical test; or
  • The score you receive on your first practice test in your test prep program with The Princeton Review that is for the identical test.  For Self-Paced, GMAT Connect, and GMAT Connect Plus programs, you must take your first practice test within 14 days of purchase.

We’ll then compare your starting score to the score you received on the official test.

*For tests with scores by section or subject, the relevant “score” is the total or composite score over all sections of the exam, but excluding the essay/analytical writing section.


Q. What is the Double Money Back Guarantee?

A. If you purchased an MCAT course between March 19, 2018 and May 31, 2018 and are eligible for a refund of your tuition for the course under The Princeton Review Guarantee, then we will refund you double the amount you paid for your tuition. MCAT Comprehensive Tutoring Packages are not eligible for the Double Money Back Guarantee.

If you purchased an ACT or SAT Comprehensive Tutoring Package between April 24, 2018 and May 31, 2018 and are eligible for a refund of your tuition for your program under The Princeton Review Guarantee, then we will refund you double the amount you paid for your tuition.

All applicable taxes are your responsibility, and you may be required to provide your social security number to be used for tax purposes.
