    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. If a student elects to
    a course, the student must notify the CTC. 
    Students who have not visited the school
    facility prior to enrollment have the
    opportunity to withdraw without penalty
    within three days following either attendance
    at a regularly scheduled orientation or following
    a tour of the facilities and inspection of the

    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. 

    If CTC cancels a class, the student's deposit 
    will be refunded in full.
