Financial Aid Program
- Students should have equal access to a medical school education - regardless of income.
- The costs involved in quality preparation courses are high. The mean income of the parents of the average medical student is significantly higher than the mean income of the average family. This may mean that some students have easier access to preparation courses and thus rates of admissions do not reflect society at large.
- Financial bursaries based on a student's ability to pay. Students must write a two page typed or three page handwritten autobiographical letter. The following questions can be used as guidelines, though there is no obligation to answer any particular question.
- Are you receiving federal or provincial financial aid? Full or partial?
- Are you living at home?
- Do you work full-time or part-time?
- When do you intend on applying to medical school or writing the MCAT?
- Have you either applied to medical school or written the MCAT before?
- Do you belong to a group which you feel is under represented in medical school?
- Are there special circumstances we should be aware of?

The Gold Standard Payment Program*
All students have the option of payment by instalments. The cost of the payment plan is $35 to cover administration of the plan. The payment plan works as follows: $400 is paid as an initial registration fee which reserves a place in class and allows the student to receive course materials. Then $400 is due at the time of the first lecture, while the final amount is due at the first lecture of The MCAT Clinics. Each payment is non-refundable.
* Available only to students registering for The Complete Gold Standard Program.
