What if I am currently enrolled or planning to enroll in an in-person course?
For students enrolled in an in-person program that has started or will start in the future, we’ve moved all scheduled sessions to our LiveOnline Classroom so that we can provide the same great teacher-led educational experience in a way that keeps everyone safe and socially distanced. The Princeton Review will provide regular updates as the situation evolves and will only hold in-person classes again when it is safe to do so. If you are an enrolled student, be sure to watch your email, as that’s how we will be sending updates. As always, feel free to call us at 1-800-2Review with any questions.
What if my official test date has been canceled?
If you have already started your program with The Princeton Review, we are keeping a close eye on all updates and changes from the test makers and will adapt your program to make sure you are fully prepared for test day, whenever that will be. This may include changes to your course schedule and/or additional prep materials through our Bridge program. Be sure to watch your email, as that’s how we will be sending updates. As always, feel free to call us at 1-800-2Review with any questions.
If you’ve not yet enrolled, here are all the reasons you can enroll with confidence*:

- You can cancel for a full tuition refund all the way up to the start of your program (for new enrollments from 4/21/20 to 5/31/20 only).
When should I prep if I’m not sure when I will be able to take the actual test?
While many test administrations are paused right now and future test dates are not all set, our test preparation programs are available and running. We have always recommended preparing while you have the availability to focus your time and energy. Regardless of the current outbreak of the novel coronavirus and whether you choose to prep now or prep later, we will fully support you. While our LiveOnline courses have always been popular, we have seen an increase in enrollments, and so we recommend you do enroll soon to guarantee your seat. Here are additional reasons you can enroll with confidence*:

- If your test date gets further postponed, you can also choose to take advantage of the Bridge Program, which will provide you with test-prep tools and resources until you take your exam.
Is online learning as good as in-person learning?
In a word: yes. But, it can also be not-so-good. While we applaud each and every educator who dove in to the deep end to teach online during this challenging time, we know that they will agree that effectively teaching online takes experience and expertise. The Princeton Review has been teaching online for decades. What we’ve learned in that time is that the best online education not only incorporates what’s best about face-to-face learning, but also takes advantage of the online environment to help students learn in ways not possible face-to-face. This experience and expertise helped us create our top-rated, proprietary LiveOnline platform utilized by thousands of teachers who have accumulated 582,400+ online instructional hours since August of 2011.
Do I need to take a test if schools are announcing that they are test-optional?
We applaud all schools that are making the submission of standardized test scores optional for students applying for the next cycle, as this will alleviate some pressure for students. We would, however, also remind students that even if the test is optional, a test score is more than just a requirement: a great test score can improve your chances of admission—even if the test is optional. This is especially true as more and more high schools and colleges are instituting pass/fail grading policies and many extracurricular activities are postponed. A great test score can help you stand out—now more than ever.
What if I also need help with my schoolwork?
In addition to all of our Test Prep programs, The Princeton Review has programs to assist with schoolwork while you are learning from 新疆11选5走势图, including our LiveOnline Academic Tutoring and On-Demand 新疆11选5走势图work Help.
