Student’s Obligation for Payment:

Registration constitutes a financial contract
between students and the school. Students
are ultimately responsible for payment of
all fees owed to the school (tuition, books,
fees, & other related expenses) including
instances where anticipated financial aid
becomes unavailable. If a balance is due to
the school, the school has the right to cancel
students’ registration, to withhold grades,
transcripts, or certificates, and to refuse
admittance to final exams/clinicals. 

Refund Policy:
 For Long-term programs (those eligible
 for financial aid), during the first 60% of a
payment period, tuition due will be prorated
based upon the days completed. After
60% of the payment period has elapsed,
no tuition will be deducted. Students will
always be responsible for the payment for
textbooks and fees that have been used or
cannot be returned. 

 For short-term programs (those not eligible
for financial aid), if a student elects to drop
a course, the student must complete the
designated form available at the CTC office.
If the request is made prior to the second
class meeting, a full refund minus any
expense to the CTC (background check fee,
course supplies) will be issued. After the
second meeting, a refund will not be issued.
