You, either as an adult student or a parent/guardian to a minor child, have enrolled yourself or your child in a program with KD College Prep (“KDCP”, “we”, “us”, “our”). You and your child (individually and collectively referred to herein as “you”) agree that your enrollment in our program is subject to all of the following terms and conditions (the “Enrollment Agreement”).

All program techniques and materials (online and print), content, code, software, data, videos, and session transcripts, copyrights, trademark rights, and other intellectual and property rights used in or related to your program are the exclusive property of KDCP. You agree not to disclose, reproduce, sell or distribute to any third party any information, written or spoken, including course materials, obtained from KDCP in connection with KDCP courses or tutoring programs. Without limiting the foregoing, you further agree not to share any KDCP password or to otherwise allow any other person to use the KDCP resources purchased by you. To the extent you need to download software or documentation to access services or materials in connection with your program, KDCP grants you a limited, non-assignable, non-transferable, revocable license to use such services and materials solely for use with your purchased program or services and only for your personal, non-commercial use. Such license will terminate when your program, plan or other service expires or otherwise terminates.

You understand that for certain KDCP programs, size is limited, and, therefore, enrollment is taken on a first-come, first-served basis.

KDCP reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to change this Enrollment Agreement, in whole or in part, at any time. Changes to this Enrollment Agreement will be effective when posted. KD College Prep also reserves the right to alter the content, availability, and/or frequency of any program or activity.

You further agree that KDCP is under no obligation to carry forward (or roll over) any unused activity from a prior academic year into a subsequent academic year. Finally, you agree that KDCP will not provide you with any materials, handouts, worksheets, or other printed materials for any activity unless the student attends the entire instructional session that corresponds to such printed materials.

PAYMENT:

You agree to pay the full and correct amount by a payment method acceptable to KDCP, for your purchases of KDCP programs and services as follows:

For checks that are returned for insufficient funds or credit cards that are declined, you agree to pay a $35 processing fee.

For our COMPLETE, ADVANCED START, or other classroom-based test preparation programs, you must at the time of enrollment 1) pay the program fee in full, or 2) agree to all terms and conditions of our installment plan. Enrollment and payment must be received before participation in your first activity at KDCP. You agree that you are enrolling in the correct program based upon your current grade level and you agree that your program will terminate immediately and without any refund, if KDCP, in its sole discretion, determines that you misrepresented your grade level at the time of your enrollment. You also agree that KDCP can remove you from participation in activities at KD College Prep if you are not fully paid or if your installment plan payments are delinquent.

Installment plan terms: You agree to pay the total fee for the program installment plan for which you enroll. You further agree that you are liable for the total fee immediately upon enrollment, less any payments or deposits made by you. You understand and acknowledge that the installment plan is not a monthly subscription. You further understand and agree that all payments will accelerate and become immediately due upon a) your failure to make timely payment for any scheduled installment, or b) termination of your program whether instigated by you (withdrawal) or by us (dismissal). Credit card authorization or postdated check payments FOR ALL INSTALLMENTS must be received by the student’s first activity (including orientation, diagnostic testing, or lesson). The first installment will be processed immediately, and subsequent installments will be processed on the recurring monthly date of the first installment payment (or in some cases, within five days of such recurring monthly date). In the event that you wish to change your payment method, you must submit the updated payment (or payment information) to the KDCP business office at least ten (10) days prior to the next scheduled payment date.

 

REFUNDS:

COMPLETE, ADVANCED START, or other classroom-based test preparation program:

A refund may be obtained if you decide to withdraw from a pre-paid, COMPLETE, ADVANCED START, or other classroom-based program prior to the earlier of: a) the conclusion of the initial set of scheduled lessons, or b) 180 days after the registration date. The refunded amount (or amount due) will equal the total amount paid, less any installment plan fees, less any referral bonus paid because of your registration, less prorated amounts for each scheduled lesson conducted and other instructional activity attended, and less a $50 nonrefundable administrative fee (see formula below).

To be eligible for any refund, a written withdrawal notice must be received by our office prior to the final session of the student’s originally scheduled lessons, and all materials provided must be returned to KDCP. No refund is available for a student whose initial set of scheduled lessons have concluded, regardless of whether the student actually attended any lesson. In the event of the closing of a KDCP campus, no refund will be available if: 1) an existing campus is open and operating within 15 miles of the campus that closes; 2) a new campus is open and operating within 45 days and 15 miles of the campus that closes; or 3) KDCP is open and operating via live, online instruction within 45 days of the campus closing.

To calculate the prorated refund amount, KDCP will employ the following formula,

Amt pd – installment fees – referral bonus pd – [($92 * L) + ($32 * A)] – $50  = Refund Amt (or amt due)

where L is equal to the number of scheduled lessons that have been met (regardless of whether or not you attended the lesson), and where A is equal to the number of hours of other instructional activities (workshops, test reviews, etc.) that you attended or scheduled to attend. When determining the value for L, KDCP will use the earliest start date among the class schedules for which you registered (if you registered for multiple class schedules or changed your class schedule). If you meet on a special schedule, KDCP will determine the value for L by totaling the number of scheduled lessons that were calendared and provided to you (regardless of whether or not you attended the lesson).

To the extent that the Refund Amount is positive, KDCP agrees to refund that amount to you. To the extent that the Refund Amount is negative, you agree to immediately pay that amount to KDCP.

Refunds will be issued in the form and manner chosen by KDCP. This means that we reserve the right to refund a credit card or mail a check as circumstances dictate. It also means that we use our judgment when determining to whom the refund will be issued. (Our default rule is we will refund to the student.)

INDIVIDUAL TUTORING PROGRAM ADDITIONAL TERMS:

For our INDIVIDUAL TUTORING program, you must at the time of enrollment 1) pay the non-refundable enrollment fee (waived for COMPLETE program students), and 2) agree to all of our Payment, Scheduling, Cancellation, and Rescheduling terms.

Payment Terms

Payment for the Enrollment Fee is non-refundable and must be received before the Individual Tutoring coordinator can begin to develop your Individual Tutoring Plan. For Individual Tutoring for College Admissions Tests, you must submit payment in full for the entire Tutoring Plan before we can schedule any tutoring sessions. For Individual College Essay Tutoring or for Supplemental Tutoring for College Admissions Tests, you must submit payment in full for each session before we can schedule that session. If any instruction sessions in your Tutoring Plan are not used you may elect to use them later (they never expire); however, no refund is available unless you submit a refund request in writing at least 24 hours prior to the start of your fourth individual instruction session. In the event of a refund, we will retain $450 from the amount you paid to cover administrative and payroll costs for the first three instruction sessions; any remainder will be returned to you within 14 days of our receipt of the refund request.

Scheduling Terms

Individual instruction sessions are scheduled for 55 minutes of one-on-one instruction. Prescribed practice sessions are typically scheduled to occur immediately after instruction sessions. Timed testing sessions are scheduled according to learning benchmarks set forth in the Tutoring Plan. A timed test must be reviewed in follow-up instruction sessions before another timed testing session can be scheduled. Individual instruction sessions are subject to teacher and room availability. When determining our teacher and room availability, we give higher priority to classroom-based activities. Because of this priority, instruction session availability might be extremely limited on weekends, holidays, days before national test dates, and other high-traffic times.

Cancellation & Rescheduling Terms

You may cancel or reschedule, at no additional cost, any individual instruction session as long as you notify us by phone or email at least 24 hours before your scheduled session. In the event that you need to reschedule an individual instruction session that is less than 24 hours away, you must submit payment of a $50 rebooking fee before we can reschedule that session. If you choose instead to cancel your session without rescheduling, you will forfeit that session from your plan or, in the case of single prepaid sessions, the entire amount prepaid for that session.

ON-DEMAND CORE PROGRAM ADDITIONAL TERMS:

The On-Demand Core Program is 100% online, pre-recorded instructional activity – there is no in-person or live instruction included with this program. By purchasing and accessing this platform, you agree that you will not share your access, or any curriculum you receive, with any other person. You further agree that there is no refund or partial refund available after you access the first activity on the platform. Your completion of the Getting Started “Tips for Success” module indicates your understanding and acceptance of the terms of this Enrollment Agreement.

COLLEGE COUNSELING PROGRAMS ADDITIONAL TERMS:

Due to limited availability, KD College Prep cannot reserve a spot for any college counseling program or session until you provide registration and payment in full. For all college counseling programs, we reserve the right to dismiss without refund any client who is disruptive or destructive.
You acknowledge that KD College Prep, its partners, principals, employees, and counselors have not made any guarantees or representations that the student will gain admission or scholarships to any particular university, college, or program. KD College Prep cannot guarantee admission to any college or university, nor can we create, write, or complete any part of a student’s application and/or essay for any college or scholarship. It is the student’s responsibility to submit applications and supplemental items to colleges before deadlines. We do not provide legal, tax, or investment advice.

If a refund is sought for the APPLY NOW! Advantage Program, KD College Prep will apply the following policy:

  • For all refund requests, you agree that you will provide the request in writing and return any curriculum provided to you.

To the extent that the Refund Amount is positive, KDCP agrees to refund that amount to you. To the extent that the Refund Amount is negative, you agree to immediately pay that amount to KDCP, as payment for services already rendered.
  • If the refund is requested prior to March 1st of the student’s 11th grade academic year, the billables will equal the sum of all installment plan fees, plus $92 per each scheduled lesson conducted, plus $450 per each scheduled PINNACLE session, plus a $50 nonrefundable administrative fee.
  • If the refund is requested on or after March 1st, but prior to May1st, of the student’s 11th grade academic year, the billables will be equal to the GREATER of:
    • the sum of all installment plan fees, plus $92 per each scheduled lesson conducted, plus $450 per each scheduled PINNACLE session, plus a $50 nonrefundable administrative fee.
    • 50% of the then-current, full price APPLY NOW! Advantage Program fee.

If a refund is sought for any prepaid PINNACLE sessions, the refund amount will be calculated using the following formula:
Refund amount = amount paid – ([# of sessions attended/charged to student] * [PINNACLE session hourly rate at the time of refund, $450 in 2024])

APPLY NOW! Essay Boot Camp Additional Terms

Payment for APPLY NOW! Essay Boot Camps is required to reserve your spot and is non-refundable. A laptop computer (with power supply) and flash drive are required for participation in APPLY NOW! Essay Boot Camps. These sessions are student-only events—parent attendance is not permitted. Students must attend all meetings of the specific boot camp session they choose – make-up meetings are not available. Students are not allowed to “mix and match” meetings from different boot camp sessions.

By registering and paying for any APPLY NOW! Essay Boot Camp, you agree that you will provide your own laptop computer and flash drive. By registering and paying for an APPLY NOW! Essay Boot Camp, you acknowledge that the student will be working in a fast-paced setting, that he or she will need to attend every session of the boot camp and stay for the entire time, and that he or she will need to complete additional, independent work during and after the Boot Camp to finalize essays.

TESTIMONIALS

“When I first started KD, I had zero SAT® experience. The summer lessons helped me build my foundation and I really started to see a boost in my scores after taking numerous workshops throughout the school year to build on that foundation. Without KD, I don't think I would have the motivation to consistently study for the SAT (test). In the beginning, every time I saw a KD email, I'd remember to sign up for a workshop and practice test for the weekend. Then, it became a habit to go to KD on Saturday mornings. Going to these workshops and taking practice tests consistently helped me get exposed to every question on the SAT (test) for math. Therefore, I was hardly ever surprised to... Read more...

“Obviously SAT® test prep was NOT fun. The experience was difficult and exhausting, but learning through KD definitely made the experience much less stressful and definitely easier. It's a great system with tons of resources all aimed to give you what you need and more to reach whatever score range you set as your goal (I was able to get a 1540). My favorite part though, specifically with the Coppell campus, was the people! Everyone was so incredibly nice and always in impossibly good moods. It was a great environment to learn and improve in!”

“I want to thank KD College Prep for helping me get the score I needed to receive over $464,000 in scholarships, including two full rides. I started the program the summer going into my junior year. I had an excellent GPA but struggled on standardized tests. Taking the test prep classes throughout junior year and taking practice tests got me more prepared each time I took the test. I achieved my best score the summer going into my senior year. That score allowed me to apply to my top schools as soon as early decision opened. I am so grateful to Karen Dillard and the extra practice and proctored exams! My parents are grateful too—for the small investment they got a great return.”

“My time and experiences at KD College Prep have efficiently guided and prepared me for my future educational career as a college student. Not only did KD help me with college entrance exams but also provided numerous informational seminars that helped me with the various steps required for college admissions. At KD I enjoyed learning from amazing teachers, who cared for each of their students individually and were ready to help wherever it was needed. Being a student at KD has also helped me figure out which learning techniques work best for me. The opportunity to engage in different learning methods such as small group interactive learning, larger group discussions, or individual practice are all ways that helped me come up with a learning...

My feedback can only be positive, given how much you helped me get ahead with my application process. I really appreciated how much work both of you put into helping me write the best essay possible, especially reviewing my essays twice to polish them completely. In addition, I have noticed that writing my resume has released a lot of stress off my shoulder when it comes to making sure I have all the things necessary to apply to schools.

“I want to thank both of you so very much for making this dream come true. When I first came to KD, I wanted to get a score of 1520 or above... So many people told me it would be impossible to reach my desired score. After months of using KD's methods my scores definitely improved but hovered around 1350—still not near the score I needed but closer. After finally working with both of you during one on ones, my scores started to see heavy improvement and while I didn't get a score of 1520 or above as a single score, I got it as a superscore...
