Users enrolled via payment plans must make all payments on time. A failure to pay will lead to your account being put on hold until payment is completed as well as a $50 service fee if the payment does not clear within 24 hours of the initial failed payment. If your account is over 7 days in arrears, you will be expected to make a full payment in order to re-activate your account. If your account is over 10 days in arrears, your unpaid amount including the $50 service fee may be sent to a collection agency.
We are so confident that we can improve your GRE score up to 7+ points (up to 330+) that we are the only company to give you the PrepScholar 7+ Point Money Back Guarantee (the “7+ Guarantee”) for our Complete package.
You qualify for the 7+ Guarantee if:
You agree that for each instance (copy) of preparation that you purchase, only one person will study from the course. This limitation does not include having another person debug an account or otherwise help that one person, as long as such time is limited to less than 5% of the total access time. PrepScholar may shut down the account with no refund provided if it believes the account is being used by multiple persons to study. In such a case, if in fact only one person was studying the only remedy would be refund of that package, and not restoration of that account.
If for any reason you’re not satisfied with our product within our 5-day trial period, simply let us know and we’ll give you a refund with no reason needed! Please note for tutoring packages, the portion of tutoring that has already been done cannot be refunded, although all other parts can be. You can request a refund any time within 120 hours (5 days) of beginning our package. This 120-hour period does not start running until you submit your completed diagnostic test to us! To request a refund, call us (leave a message if prompted) or email us at email@example.com with the username of the account (which is the same as the email address) and we’ll give you a refund.
Restrictions: At most one refund will be provided per household, account purchaser, account user, or account. This applies to all package types and test types.
If you are buying a product that advertises "Free Trial," and not a "Risk-Free Trial," then you will not be charged until your free trial period ends. You are able to cancel at any time by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject "Cancel Trial Request". Your free trial period lasts 5 days (120 hours). PrepScholar grants you a grace period before the free trial: the free trial period does not start until the account submits the diagnostic test or 15 days (360 hours) have passed since the submission of payment information. In other words, the free trial period ends the earlier of 1) when the account submits the diagnostic test plus 5 days, or 2) 20 days (480 hours) from payment information submission. All account cancellation emails will be processed in accordance with the received timestamp on your email (as recorded by our third-party servers).
You must arrange to keep in email contact with PrepScholar. Email is mandatory and NOT optional and for one-off support only.
By default you will communicate with PrepScholar in English via email. Any other mutually agreeable communication method, if agreed in writing, is acceptable as well as an adjunct to email. You are responsible for providing us with a correct email address that you routinely check at least once every 48 hours. You are responsible for ensuring deliverability of PrepScholar emails with your email provider, which may include checking the spam folder or whitelisting the email address “email@example.com”.
Your inability or unwillingness to communicate in English via email may hamper your ability to complete our course in a timely or proper fashion. By way of example, PrepScholar may arrange via email for students to receive physical textbooks, and non-response or non-compliance to this email will cause PrepScholar to be unable to ship the book, and will prevent the student from completing PrepScholar as designed. Other possible checkpoints may require the student to email PrepScholar to proceed through.
Your nonresponse to email may hold up critical non-computerized portions of the preparation process, and you agree to take full responsibility for the results of this on your own if you do not remain in email contact.
PrepScholar at its sole discretion may offer you a Payment Plan. After PrepScholar collects payment information from you and issues you the Written Terms, PrepScholar may charge you in accordance with the terms. You have 5 days (120 hours) from the moment PrepScholar sends you the Written Terms to dispute the terms. Each payment plan will consist of the name of the product being offered, and a set of pairs of dates and charge amounts that may not necessarily add up to the posted retail price of the product. For each pair of date and charge amount, PrepScholar may charge you that amount on or after the corresponding date. Under a Payment Plan, you have the same refund guarantees as a full one-time payer, but not more. In particular, you may not stop paying simply because you do not like the package or do not use it anymore. In terms of the rights of PrepScholar and your responsibilities, the Payment Plan can be see as a loan whereby the full one-time cost is charged at enrollment, and collection of the loan occurs afterwards. If any payment is declined or cannot be made by you, PrepScholar may charge a $70 administrative fee per instance in addition to any direct fees charge by banks. You authorize PrepScholar to re-try the charge after failure after 2 business days. If you are more than 5 business days late in payment, PrepScholar may pursue collection and legal action to recover the money. In such a case, you will be responsible for all collection and legal costs relating to your case.
In the case PrepScholar is not able to deliver the services purchased, PrepScholar may offer you a partial or full refund in return for cessation of all remaining services. Further, PrepScholar may terminate its relationship with any customer for any legal reason, or no reason at all if legal, at PrepScholar's discretion by offering the customer a full refund of all amounts paid. PrepScholar's maximum liability shall not exceed the actual purchase price paid for the account or products, and in no event shall PrepScholar be liable for loss of, damage to, or corruption of data stored with PrepScholar about your account, or for special, incidental, consequential, or indirect damages whatsoever, including without limitations teaching strategies or content that is ineffective, faulty, or incorrect.
Package Extensions, or the allowance of students to access the package for longer than the one-year period, may be granted. Students who have a Package Extension must accept any ongoing changes to the package that PrepScholar make to the package. Students who have a Package Extension are not entitled to upgrades or transference of their account to any other version / test of the package, even if the original test version is discontinued. If a Package Extension is paid for, then the payment for the Package Extension has no trial refund period, and is not included in the point guarantee.
Where versions of the product offer "unlimited" or "lifetime" access, this is to be understood as offering access to the product for at least 2 years (24 months), but continuing as long as all of the following conditions hold: 1) the product remains substantially unchanged and available for sale 2) until the end of June following the last time you apply to grad school in your life, and 3) the end of 6 years (2190 days) after you purchase the product. By way of example, if you buy this product July 1st, 2018, the latest it could end is approximately July 1st, 2024 (6 years). However, if the last time you apply to grad school is December 2020, the product will end June 30th, 2021. Further, if this product line is no longer provided technologically by May 30th, 2021, then service will end then. For "unlimited" or "lifetime" products, you may not transfer the account to a different student, and generally will not reset the course (e.g. make finished classes that you mastered open for re-taking).
A Group Gold organization is a legal or natural person who enters into a written agreement, through either informal email or a formal signed contract, with PrepScholar to provide a Group Gold license under which Group Gold accounts can be purchased, or otherwise purchases a Group Gold account. A Group Gold organization will be referred to as the “organization” or “org” regardless of the nature of the entity. The organization is represented by any natural persons, termed here Group Gold administrators (“administrators” or “admin”), who have full agency power to act on behalf of the organization. This includes all lawful managers as well others appointed by the organization. The natural persons who are learning using PrepScholar are termed “Group Gold students”.
The All Visitor Terms (“AVT”) above shall apply to Group Gold organizations, administrators, and students, unless they conflict with any of the Terms in the sub-sections below known as Group Gold Accounts Terms of Service (“GGAT”). In the case any condition in the GGAT (“GGAT condition”) conflicts with any condition in the AVT (“AVT condition”), then the AVT condition shall be negated to the minimum degree necessary to remove the conflict.
The organization or its administrators authorize purchases of licenses by submitting an email requesting a number of accounts be onboarded. Unless authorized in writing beforehand, the sales is made at the time Prepscholar notifies the requester that onboarding for those accounts are successful (the “start time” for the account). The notification email will include email addresses identifying the PrepScholar accounts that have been onboarded.
Each Group Gold account allows the one Group Gold student identified by the each account’s email address sole use of PrepScholar through the associated account. The account shall remain actively supported for one semester, not to exceed 150 days, after which the Group Gold student may use the account for a passively supported period of time, up to a year after the start time. If the Group Gold student wishes to reinstate support for an account that is off support, the organization may purchase another license from PrepScholar through email.
Actively supported accounts are entitled to three reports. Each report may be requested by an administrator at any time with 5 business days' notice. Each report shall specify completed lessons, time on site, and the GRE score results of practice tests.
Each supported account will receive full technical support included in the purchase price. Technical support can be accessed by admins by contacting the phone number at the bottom of the PrepScholar home page. Administrators may authorize Group Gold to directly contact support. Technical support refers to issues arising from deficiencies or unclear technical instructions in the PrepScholar software, where deficiencies and unclear is defined according to PrepScholar’s sole discretion.
Group Gold accounts instruct students completely through our automated computer platform. Accounts do not include tutoring or any one-on-one help with content. Technical support does not include content help. For example, suppose the rare case we have a mistake with one of our math problems. Suppose we incorrectly state that 241 * 21 = 5060. Then the student or any representative of the organization may contact us and receive 1:1 help on correcting this technical problem on our side. On the contrary, suppose we correctly state that 241 * 21 = 5061 on one of our math problems. The Group Gold package does not cover (under Technical Support or otherwise) the student contacting us to explain why that math is true, or how to do multiplation, etc. Group Gold purchasers may access 1:1 tutoring at the standrad tutoring rates posted at PrepScholarTutors.com, which will be structred nearly identically to tutoring for personal accounts.
Group Gold accounts are entitled to support in account creation (the technical inputting of usernames and passwords to make them usable), three standard reports, support for technical bugs, and account closure. Group Gold accounts do not include any manual 1:1 consultative help on organizational integration or deployment strategy. Any such help would be provided at PrepScholar's sole discretion. In addition, Group Gold accounts do not include founder consulting.
Any admin may cancel any account associated with the organization by sending an email to PrepScholar. Cancelled accounts may be erased the moment such an email is received, and usage data, historical grades, scores, and other information associated with the account may not be maintained.
You agree both directly and through your administrators to only allow one natural person to use each account purchased. By way of example, if John and Peter are two people in a class, they many not actively prepare using the same account; likewise, if John uses an account for 3 months, he may not pass in on to Peter who uses it for another 3 months. This limitation does not include having a person debug an account or otherwise help that first person, as long as such time is limited to less than 5% of the total access time.
The PrepScholar website across-the-board improvements, feature additions, bugfixes, changes, and generally “software updates”. The organization agrees that for each account, PrepScholar has no responsibility to maintain backwards compatibility or preserve the layout of the account. The organization agrees to allow each account to be updated to the latest version of the site along with the rest of the site.
An account under the Group Gold license is not eligible for the Point Score Guarantee. The Guarantee is designed as a vote of assurance for consumers who have no experience with PrepScholar products, and for organizations the assurance is provided by previous experience, pilots, and other information provided by PrepScholar sales.
