throughout each Strategy Guide allow students to test
their understanding and measure their progress along
the way.

MANHATTAN PREP COURSE POLICIES

Refunds/Cancellations
All payments made to Manhattan Prep are nonrefundable. Because of the proprietary nature of our materials, our
limited class size, the scheduling/booking costs of our teachers, and our own administrative costs, we are not able
to provide refunds to students for any reason. This applies both to deposits and any other tuition payments.
Remember that complete tuition payments are due upon the first day of class. If you have an open balance after
the first class session, your credit card will be automatically charged the remaining amount on the following
business day, and this charge is also nonrefundable.

Switching into a Different Course


If you are enrolled in a course that has not yet begun and has not sold out, you may switch into another course
with no penalty by contacting Student Services at least 48 hours prior to the start of the class you are currently
enrolled in. If your course has already begun or has sold out, you can switch into another upcoming course for a
$300 fee. If you choose to switch from a Live Online course into an in-person course, additional fees will apply.
Unfortunately, because of the strict class sizes we enforce, we cannot make any exceptions to this rule. We do,
however, provide make-up options detailed below.

Making Up Class Sessions


In-person course students may attend up to three make-up classes by sitting in on another in-person
course in their area. To make up a class, you must reserve a sit-in spot in advance; you can do so
online through the Student Center (click on ‘Class Schedule’ under the Reservations tab). Students
are allowed to schedule these make-ups throughout their course or up to three months after their
course ends.

Live Online course students will have access to recordings of each of their nine class sessions with
their assigned Instructors. These recordings are accessible through Elluminate, our e-learning
platform. Each recording becomes available for review approximately 24 hours after that week’s
session ends.

Both in-person and Live Online students also have access to a complete set of pre-recorded class
sessions in their Student Center.

If you find you cannot make up the course work through the above options, you may retake a full course at a
discounted rate.

Retaking a Course
 If you have taken an in-person 9-session course, you are eligible to retake another in-person or Live Online
course for a discounted fee of $399.
 If you have taken a Live Online 9-session course, you are eligible to retake another Live Online course for a
discounted fee of $399. If you choose to retake an in-person course, additional fees will apply.

To enroll, call Student Services at 646-254-6479.

Score Guarantees
Manhattan Prep does not offer score guarantees. One of the principles guiding Manhattan Prep is the belief that,
while we provide you with the structure for success, including a rigorous curriculum and outstanding teachers,
most of the work must come from you. We are confident that if you apply yourself by completing all the assigned
homework, coming prepared to every class, and taking advantage of the additional resources we provide, you will
meet your GRE score goals. That said, we do want to be sure that you are completely satisfied with all aspects of
your course. If any part of your experience with Manhattan Prep falls short of your expectations, please contact us
immediately at 646-254-6479.
