The discount will automatically be applied to your package cost in your shopping cart.

If you choose to upgrade to one of the promotional products displayed during the checkout process, you will need to re-apply the student discount to that product.

Please note: Limited access online packages (non-Season Pass) are not eligible for the last year's student discount.

The past student discount is applied automatically upon checkout. If it does not apply, there may be several reasons:

  • You have to be a MedEntry student in the immediate preceding year, not 2 or 3 years before.
  • If you do not use the same email address as last year, the discount will not be automatically applied.
  • You have to be logged in first then go to the shop (if you go to the shop and then login, you won’t see the discount).
  • Limited access online packages (non-Season Pass) are not eligible for the last year's student discount.
