No-Risk MERP Fee Policy

We believe that MERP is an excellent investment to help students prepare to succeed in medical school. Our hope is that this policy will allow students to enter the program confident in their decision to move forward and ready to focus on what matters most: their success.

Therefore, MERP has a no-risk fee policy. Students who start the program but do not successfully complete the program will receive a refund of the full program fee.* This policy applies to all MERP students who check in at the campus and begin classes but do not achieve passing grades, regardless of whether they complete the program or withdraw early.

Please note: Students that pay a seat deposit for enrollment but do not attend classes are not eligible for a refund. Seat deposits are non-refundable.

*Students who have taken out a private loan will have their tuition refunded back to the loan provider.

The purpose of the Medical Education Readiness Program is to prepare prospective students to be successful as a medical student. Students accepted into this program are not being admitted into medical school, and will not be awarded any kind of degree or credential other than a certificate of completion. However, we believe that students who successfully complete the program will be prepared for the challenge of medical school.
