Withdrawal from the University and Institutional Refund Calculation

A student may withdraw from Contemporary Technology University at any time for any reason. Students who wish to withdraw from the University must send an email indicating their name and Student ID to Student Services requesting to withdraw. Students submitting a request to withdraw are also asked to state their reason for withdrawing from the University in the email to Student Services at

Students who have withdrawn but wish to return to study in the future will be required to re-apply for the admission process. 

A withdrawal is considered to have occurred on the earlier of (a) the date the student officially notifies the campus of his or her intent to withdraw, or (b) the point at which the student fails to meet the published academic policies outlined in the Academic Catalog (“Date of Determination”).

Notice of withdrawal may be given by mail, fax, or email. The notice of withdrawal, if sent by mail, is effective when deposited in the mail, and properly addressed with postage prepaid.

For Contemporary Technology University students, a notice of cancellation should be given by email. The written notice of withdrawal need not take any particular form and, however, expressed, is effective if it states that a student no longer wishes to be bound by the Enrollment Agreement.

Contemporary Technology University reserves the right to withdraw a student if, at any time, the student fails to meet the policies as outlined in the Academic Catalog.

Upon a student’s withdrawal, the University performs a calculation to determine unearned tuition and return of corresponding funds. Students can obtain a full refund of charges paid through attendance at the first session, or the seventh day after enrollment, whichever is later. Any student may withdraw from the school at any time, after classes start, and receive a pro-rata refund calculated based on the remaining scheduled days in the current payment period in the program, and based on the last day of attendance.

For the purpose of determining the final amount of the refund, the date of the student’s withdrawal shall be deemed the last date of recorded attendance. The amount for refund equals the daily charge for the program (total institutional charge, minus non- refundable fees, divided by the number of days in the program), multiplied by the remaining number of days scheduled to attend, prior to withdrawal.
