Your enrollment in products, services, or events offered by Admit Master (“We”) is subject to the following Terms & Conditions that govern our relationship with You, our Client. If you purchase our product or service for another person, these Terms and Conditions govern our relationship with both You and the person who will be using our products or services (collectively, “You”).
1. Live Courses (In-person and Online)
Course Repeat Policy
You may repeat the same course free of charge within 12 months of your original course start date. After 12 months, you may repeat the same course for 50% of the current tuition fee. If you register for an individual module of a course, you may repeat the same module for 50% of the current tuition fee.
Since there is a limited number of seats in each class, you must confirm your repeat attendance at least 72 hours before the class. All repeat seats are booked on a first-come, first-served basis and are subject to seat availability.
Free repeat policy applies to live class sessions only. If you have been granted printed course materials, personal tutoring sessions, and/or online study access as part of your original course, you may purchase new printed course materials, additional tutoring hours, and/or extended online study access as necessary.
Course Deferral and Withdrawal Policy
We understand that sometimes your plans may change! You may defer your course once free of charge to a later date within 12 months of your original course start date. All course deferral requests must be made in writing to [email protected] no later than 7 (seven) calendar days before the start date of your course. Additional deferrals will be subject to an administration fee of $200.
If you miss your first scheduled class and don’t advise us in writing to [email protected] no later than 7 (seven) calendar days before the start date of your course, we will assess a $200 administration fee to defer your course to a later date.
Due to the proprietary nature of our materials, our limited class size, the scheduling/booking costs of our instructors and classrooms, and our own administrative costs, we are not able to provide refunds of course fees for any reason. This applies both to deposits and any other payments. Please note that refunds are not issued for course withdrawals, missed class sessions, unused private tutoring hours, or unclaimed online study access.
Course Scheduling Policy
All course times, locations and instructors are subject to change at any time. We will notify you of any changes made to your classes via an email sent to the email address you’ve provided to us during registration. You must check your email account, including Spam folder, frequently prior to the start of your classes as we are not responsible for any missed classes due to a misread or misdirected email.
If, for any reason, your original course is rescheduled by more than 14 (fourteen) calendar days from the course start date indicated on your registration confirmation form, you have an option to:
- transfer your course fee to any future Admit Master course of the same format. If your real exam has been scheduled within 30 days of your original course end date, and needs to be rescheduled due to changes in the course schedule, we will pay your exam rescheduling fees up to US$100.
- switch to a different course format and receive a refund of the difference in course fees (or pay only the difference)
- receive a 100% refund of the course fees you’ve paid with no administration fees
The aforementioned policy applies only to your initial course registration date and does not extend to course repeats or deferrals.
Live courses scheduled to run during Christmas and New Year holidays have a high probability to be cancelled and are exempt from this policy. Refunds for cancelled courses that were scheduled to start in November or December and end in January will not be available, however we will offer you a seat in any available course during the following year.
2. On-Demand Courses (with or without Instructor Coaching)
When you register for an online on-demand course, you will receive access to the online study materials for the duration of time indicated on the registration page. Upon expiration, you may extend your online access for an additional fee. If your online course includes printed study materials, we will contact you to arrange shipping or pickup of these materials prior to activating your online access.
Registrations for online courses are non-refundable. If you wish to evaluate the learning platform before placing an order, please contact us.
At any time within the validity of your online course, you may upgrade to a live course by paying the difference in course fees. In this case, your online access will not be extended, and your course start date for course repeat purposes will be considered the date of activation of your online course.
3. Admissions Consulting Packages
Once you have registered for a School Package, we will schedule your first Goal-Setting Session and will assign an Admissions Consultant who will begin working on your application package.
If you decide that you would prefer to work with another admissions consultant after your first Goal-Setting Session, you may do so prior to any additional work being completed. You will be paired with a new consultant and will not be charged for the initial session with your original consultant.
You may cancel your School Package, or downgrade to a smaller school or hourly package within 7 (seven) calendar days after your first Goal-Setting Session, or within 14 (fourteen) calendar days of registering for a School Package, whichever is earlier. All cancellation or downgrade requests must be made in writing to [email protected]. We will refund the fees you’ve paid, or the difference in fees if you downgrade to a smaller package, less a $200 administration fee.
Hours your consultant(s) have already worked with you for the school(s) you decide to cancel (including the hours spent by the consultant on the first Goal-Setting session) will be deducted from the refund at a rate of $300 per hour. All credit card refunds will be subject to an additional processing fee of 10% of the refunded amount.
Due to the limited capacity of our consultants and our low client-to-consultant ration, we are not able to provide refunds after 7 (seven) calendar days after your first Goal-Setting Session, or after 14 (fourteen) calendar days of registering for a School Package, whichever is earlier, for any reason.
If you are unable to attend a scheduled consulting session, you must give notice to your consultant 24 hours prior to the scheduled meeting time. Late notice or missed appointments will result in the loss of access to that specific service (e.g., mock interview preparation).
Complete School Package consulting registrations are non-transferable and expire after 12 months or after one application cycle, whichever comes first.
4. Hourly Private Tutoring and Admissions Consulting
All hourly tutoring or admissions consulting services require an initial commitment of at least 2 (two) hours. Fees for the first 2 (two) hours are non-refundable, regardless of use. Any additional hours are refundable within 90 (ninety) days from the date of your payment, provided they are unused. All credit card refunds will be subject to an additional processing fee of 10% of the refunded amount.
Duration of each tutoring or consulting session is measured in 15 minute increments. Aggregate time for all hourly services is billed rounded up to the nearest hour. If you purchase a block of hours and decide to use fewer hours, we will recalculate your hourly rate based on the number of hours actually used. If we’ve provided additional study resources as part of your hourly package, we will deduct the cost of these resources from your refund, if they are not included in a smaller hourly package.
If you’re unable to attend a scheduled tutoring or consulting session, you must give notice to your tutor or consultant (with a cc: [email protected]) 24 hours prior to the scheduled meeting time. Late notice will result in the loss of one hour of service. If you fail to attend a scheduled session without giving notice, you will be charged for the entire scheduled duration of your session.

If you choose Payment Plan 2, you will not receive access to the online study materials or tutoring hours that may be included in your course until your course is paid in full. If you fail to make the final payment on time, your enrollment will be suspended, and we will assess a $200 administration fee to reinstate your seat in the program. If you fail to make a payment within 90 (ninety) days of the due date, your course enrollment will be cancelled, and you will need to pay the full course fees to enroll in the program again.
