Match Fees

Participation in an NRMP Match requires a nominal fee that must be paid at the time of registration. Applicants who complete their registrations after the Standard Registration Deadline for the Main Residency Match must pay an additional late registration fee. All registration fees are non-refundable.

The applicant registration process requires that all fees be paid in U.S. dollars by credit card through the R3® system.  Applicants are allowed to register for and participate in an NRMP Match only after credit card information is entered through the R3 system and processed successfully.

Registration entitles the applicant to the following NRMP services:

  • Access to the NRMP Registration, Ranking, and Results® (R3®) system
  • In the Main Residency Match, processing of up to 20 different program ranks on the primary rank order list and up to 20 programs on all supplemental lists combined. A fee is incurred for each additional program ranked on the primary ROL and for each additional program on all supplemental ROLs combined.
  • In the Specialties Matching Service, processing of an unlimited number of programs
