Discounts

35%

Discount for Graduate Students & Unemployed Scholars

20%

Discount for Adjunct / Per Course Faculty

The (Not-So) Fine Print

These discounts are 'honor system' based and applied based on self-reporting. During site-wide promotions, either the promotional or the standard discount can be applied. The Grad Student discount cannot be applied to products on the Grad Student Specials Page.

 

Rush Fee

The Rush Fee adds 10% for each calendar day removed from the standard turnaround time.

Weekends are included in this calculation.

Example:

The standard turnaround for a service costing $100 is 7 business days. You need the document 2 days early. Therefore, 20% (in this case, $20) is added to the final bill, totaling $120.
