Tuition Back Guarantee Policy
We have a strong tradition of assisting aspiring medical students in building the foundation they need to be successful in medical school and to achieve their dreams of becoming physicians. Our entire focus is on your success.
That is why MERP offers a tuition back guarantee. If at any point you decide medical school is not for you, or you do not pass the program, your tuition will be fully refunded. Students who have taken out a private loan will have their tuition refunded back to the loan provider.
Prior to the December 2022 Semester (subject to change without notice)
Prior to the December 2022 semester, incoming new students who attend MERP will remain in the current tuition-only pricing structure. The cost of MERP will remain unchanged at $13,500 (not including associated costs such as a laptop device, books and supplies).
Effective December 2022 Semester (subject to change without notice)
Effective December 2022 semester, MERP will introduce a new pricing structure for incoming new students to better align with how tuition and fees are positioned at American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine (AUC) and Ross University School of Medicine (RUSM).
- While the overall cost of MERP is $13,500 (subject to change without notice), the tuition and administrative fees are now listed separately
- Under the new pricing structure, the tuition is $9,500 and an administrative fee of $4,000 is nonrefundable
- Additional costs not included in tuition and fees – laptop devices, books and supplies – will remain separate
In order to secure a seat, students are required to pay a seat deposit. Students that withdraw prior to 11:59 P.M., Eastern Time (ET) the Sunday before Orientation are not eligible for a seat deposit refund.
Students who attend MERP semester Orientation and decide to withdraw early or do not achieve passing grades, regardless of whether they complete the program, are eligible for the $9,500 tuition back guarantee.
The purpose of MERP is to prepare enrollees to be successful medical students. Students accepted into this program 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.
The refund is limited to program tuition only and does not reimburse the costs of administrative fees or laptop devices, books and supplies incurred. Students who have taken out a private loan will have their tuition refunded back to the loan provider. Funds must be returned to the lender within 60 days. Students are responsible for paying any interest on loans, even if their program fees are refunded.
