Do you offer payment plans?
No, the retainer fee must be paid in full before you are paired with a Moon Prep counselor. The retainer fee can be paid by credit card or bank draft.
How does billing work?
Counselors bill for their time with the student: virtual meetings, essay editing, interview prep, etc. Offline and online hours are billed at the same rate.
On the 1st/15th of each month, you will receive a detailed invoice with the date, length of meeting (down to the minute), and description of what was covered.
The funds are then withdrawn from the retainer balance.
Clients are required to keep a payment method on file. Once the retainer funds are used, we switch to pay-as-you-go at the same rate and unpaid balances default to the payment method on file.
Clients can login at any time to see their retainer balance, hours used, and details of their account. Clients can also change their payment method on file at any time. All payment methods are securely stored and no team member can see the full credit card or bank account information. It is encrypted.
What can hours be used on?
We don’t put limits on anything: unlimited essay edits, meetings, interview prep sessions.
You can decide what your hours can be used on: resume building, essay edits, meetings, interview prep, scholarships, etc
Do you offer single services such as essay editing?
Yes. You are in full control of what areas of the admissions process you need help with.
Does Moon Prep offer any type of guarantee?
We guarantee you will receive the highest level of service.
In the past years, 94% of our students have gotten into one of their top 3 schools.
But, unfortunately, we cannot guarantee your child will get accepted to any program or school. In fact, no counselor or company can legally guarantee this.
Can I meet my Moon Prep counselor before signing up?
Before signing up, families can schedule a free consultation with one of our Moon Prep counselors. During this video call, you can get a better understanding of the Moon Prep process and ask any questions you may have.
Do you give refunds?
The retainer fee is non-refundable. However, it never expires, can be transferred to a sibling, or used throughout college for services such as applying to internships, resume help, essay edits, and more.
Do hours ever expire?
No, you can use the hours whenever and however you want. The hours do not expire.
Can siblings share a retainer?
Yes, we do allow family members to share one retainer. This means they will have one billing account, one credit card/bank draft on file, and all hours will be deducted from that shared account. The siblings have the option to work with the same Moon Prep team member or different ones.
