Fee Structure, Payments and Discounts

  • Total program fees must be paid in full within the first two months of the program. Payments can be made one time or in two installments (50-50) within the first two month of the prep. Thirty days after the course begins, the second payment of 50% is due. We will call all parents to confirm their interest in a particular batch before sending the invoice.
  • We accept payments by ACH (debit authorization from checking or savings account), and check only. ACH payments can be made directly online by clicking on the link in your invoice email if you are making the full payment. We automatically disable the bank payment and credit card payment option, as we add your payment details to our recurring payment plan system for us to process the tuition fees every month. The credit card company's processing fee of 3% is added if the payment is to be made by credit card. Checks should be made payable to Ramana Coaching Center. Please Note: Checks returned to RCC as a result of insufficient funds are subject to a fee of $25 as allowed by the State of North Carolina.
  • Parents/guardian are encouraged to submit initial deposit no later than one week before class begins to ensure that your students receive all their course materials before the first day of class. We will mail the materials to students upon receipt of the deposit.
  • Discounts cannot be combined. If you participate in our Referral Programs, then please remember that referral discounts will only apply to new families/groups. For example, if you refer a Stay-Ahead student to our SAT program, then the Referral Program discount will no longer apply. If you refer a student who has never fully enrolled in any of our programs, then the discount will apply.
  • If you are a new registrant who was referred to our program by a friend, colleague or family member who is currently enrolled, then you may enter in their referral code when prompted during your registration process.
  • A non-negotiable $20 late payment fee will be billed to ALL accounts when payments are received after the indicated due date.
  • Ramana Coaching Center has the right to cancel SAT Enrollment if a student:
    • Disrupts classroom operations
    • Disrespects teacher and/or peers
    • Is caught cheating
    • Misses too many sessions
  • You have the option to secure a spot in the prep program by paying a reservation fee of $100.


  • Our SAT program schedules are separate and independent of academic calendar schedules. While we do observe major US holidays, we do not observe spring breaks and similar academic holidays. A full schedule, including any weekends off, will be shared with registrants before class begins.
  • Generally, we accept between 10 - 16 students for each SAT batch. This is to ensure that we maintain our small class size so that students get the most value out of their prep experience. If the numbers for a particular batch are either too low or too high, we may encourage those registrants to join a different batch.
  • Our standard prep course is synchronized with the College Board's SAT Test dates, and unfortunately, class rescheduling for missed sessions is not feasible. However, students have the option to log in to their My Portal where they can access the tests for a week and review recordings of the instructional sessions.
* We reserve the right to change our policies at any time for any reason. We encourage you to periodically visit this page for updates.
