Financial Assistance

CTU does not receive federal financial aid assistance such as the Pell Grant and Stafford Student Loan programs.

CTU, however, provides a limited number of financial assistance awards (scholarships) on the basis of high scholastic achievement and financial needs. Scholarships are awarded on the condition that the student finishes his/her degree at CTU. Transferring to another school means forfeiture of all scholarship and the student is obligated to reimburse the school the full cost of tuition and fees. Students are urged to inquire about the availability of such awards to the university’s administration.

Cancellations, Withdrawals and Refund Policy

The student has the right to cancel the enrollment agreement and obtain a refund of all charges paid less the non-refundable fee through attendance at the first session, or the seventh day after enrollment, whichever is later.

The student has the right to withdraw at any time from the course of instruction after the cancellation period and receive a pro-rata refund for the unused portion of the tuition and other refundable charges if student reaches 60% completion or less of the period of attendance. The amount of the refund is determined by deducting the registration fee from the total tuition charge, then dividing the remainder by the number of hours in the period of attendance to calculate the hourly charge. The refund is the amount in excess of what the student owes for total hours of instruction completed, including the non-refundable registration fee.

A student should send either through certified postal mail, hand deliver, or fax a written notice of cancellation or withdrawal addressed to the University Registrar at California Trinity University 2333 Beverly Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90057. The cancellation or withdrawal will take effect by the student’s written notice or by the student’s conduct, including, but not necessarily limited to, a student’s lack of attendance.

Any refunds due will be made by the University within 30 calendar days from the effective date of cancellation or withdrawal.

In order to ensure that students are fully informed of their rights and procedures for recovering tuition refunds, a copy of the University’s Cancellation/Withdrawal Policy is provided to each student upon registration. In compliance with the applicable California Education Code (Section 94919), the School’ cancellation/withdrawal and refund policy is also fully disclosed in the enrollment agreement.

Student Tuition Recover Fund (STRF) Statement

By law, all educational institutions authorized to operate in the State of California must participate in the Student Tuition Recovery Fund. The full text of the Student Tuition Recovery Fund is reproduced as below:

California law requires that, upon enrollment, a fee be assessed in relation to the cost of tuition to all institutions authorized to operate in the State of California (Education Code Section 94343). These fees support the Student Tuition Recovery Fund (STRF), a special fund established by the California Legislature to reimburse students who might otherwise experience a financial loss as a result of untimely school closure. Students may be reimbursed by STRF only for prepaid but unused money. Institutional participation is mandatory.

It is important that students keep a copy of any enrollment agreement, contract or application to document enrollment as well as tuition receipts or canceled checks to document the total amount of tuition paid; these records will show the percentage of the course which has been completed. Such records would substantiate a claim for reimbursement from the STRF, to be considered, which must be filed within sixty (60) days of the school’s closure.

Student Loan Responsibilities

CTU does not offer any state or federal loan guarantees; no loans of any kind are offered at this school. If the student obtains a loan to pay for an educational program, the student will have the responsibility to repay the full amount of the loan plus interest, less the amount of any refund. If the student receives federal student financial aid funds, the student is entitled to a refund of the moneys not paid from federal financial aid funds.
