Registering for Standardized Tests

Registering for a Sandweiss Test Prep course or private tutoring program does not include registration for the actual test. We are not affiliated with any of the official testing organizations. We provide practice tests only! Students (or parents/guardians) must register on your own for any official exams for which you are preparing.  Please see each group course or FAQ page for links to register for each official exam.

Group Course Payment Policies:

  • A deposit payment of $125 is required to hold your place in a course.
  • Full payment for all group courses is due at or before the first course lesson. If you would like to pay the course fee in installments, let us know. We’re happy to help you arrange a payment plan. Please contact us for details.
  • Course Refund Policy: The $125 deposit and any other course payments are fully refundable up until one week before the course begins. Within one week of the course start day, all payments EXCEPT for the deposit will be refunded upon request. The $125 course deposit is not refundable within one week of the course start date.  After the first class session, a prorated refund amount may be provided upon request. No refunds will be available after the second class lesson.

Private Tutoring Payment Policies:

  • We request payment of the tutoring registration fee and the first appointment fee upon confirmation of the tutoring schedule.
  • If not paid previously, the tutoring registration fee and the first session fee are expected at or before the first appointment – before the student receives tutoring.
  • All tutoring session fees are due up front – at or before each appointment.  You may pay for each appointment “as you go” or pay in advance for as many appointments as you’d like.
  • If payments are not received each week or otherwise in a timely manner, and prior arrangements have not been made, we reserve the right to refuse service or to request that a student call a parent/guardian to make the payment prior to beginning the tutoring session.

Course Repeat Policy:

If you take a test prep course with us and don’t get the score you want, we offer you the opportunity of a one-time repeat of our next course – scheduled to begin after prior scores are available – for a fee of $100. Please note, that if the second course is taking the same practice tests as the original course, we will recommend scheduling different practice tests and separate test review sessions which will incur additional charges.

Please note:

  • If you take a condensed course (offered at a reduced price), and want to retake a full course you will be asked to pay the difference in course fees, plus the Repeat Fee.
  • The repeat option includes the course lessons, practice tests and test reviews.
  • Study Hall is not included for students repeating the course at a reduced fee.
  • A new prep book is not included for students repeating the course at a reduced fee.  Students may purchase a new book elsewhere as we do not sell books.  Otherwise, students repeating a course need to bring the book they received in their original course; a new book will not be provided.

Tutoring Cancellation Policy

We understand that many of our clients have very busy schedules and that situations arise that would require rescheduling or canceling an appointment.  Please remember that your tutor’s time has been reserved for you and he/she will be expecting you at your scheduled and confirmed time.  We kindly request that you provide us with 48 hours notice to avoid charges. Notice of less than 48 hours will generally incur charges for the full amount of the initially-scheduled session fee. Appointments considered to be a ‘No Show’ with no call to cancel will be charged at the full tutoring rate. Thank you for your understanding.
