  • This one-time payment covers the registration fee of $99.00. Monthly program fees of $179 will be made to this method of payment on September 1st, October 3rd, November 1st, and December 1st.

    The first installment of $99 is charged now and is non-refundable, even if the student withdraws from the course or program. Program fees of $179 will be made on each of the following dates in 2022: September 1st, October 3rd, November 1st, and December 1st. Each of the $179 payments are eligible for grade-based compensation to Early Registrants upon "Successful Completion" of the program.

    The deadline to register as an Early Registrant is Sunday, August 21st , 2022 at 11:59pm. Any student who registers after that time is considered a Standard Registrant. Standard Registrants are NOT eligible for grade-based compensation.


    Attendance and participation are critical parts of the B or Better Program. During each "instructional week" (beginning with the first week of the semester) students must fully attend two (2) "Group Sessions"; the first is typically Monday or Tuesday and the second is typically Wednesday or Thursday. The upcoming syllabus for these sessions can be viewed by clicking the "View Schedule" icon on the "Group Session" signup page. Attendance will be taken each day and students will need to sign in when they arrive. In the event of a dispute involving attendance, the sign in sheets will exclusively be used to determine whether a student was absent or present. Students are permitted no more than two (2) unexcused absences for the “Group Sessions” between Monday, August 22nd and Friday, December 9th. Students also must not accrue more than one "Group Session" absence in any calendar month. Students must attend all sessions in-person.

    During "exam weeks", students must fully attend all available Exam Review Sessions. Students are not permitted any absences for these sessions. Excused absences for reasons of health, family emergencies, or acts of God will be permitted assuming appropriate documentation is submitted for the absence. Students must attend all sessions in-person.

    Each Wednesday, students must complete a "Grade Submission" via email. This email should include one screenshot of the WebWork gradebook and one screenshot of the Canvas gradebook. Email must be sent to Grade submissions sent to any other email address will NOT be deemed valid. Participants must have 16 on-time grade submissions. For students with perfect attendance, each late or incomplete grade submission will only reduce the refund amount by 25%; for example, a student that has perfect attendance but has 2 incomplete or late grade submissions can still get a refund, but the refund amount is reduced by 50%. Likewise, a student that has perfect attendance but has 4 late or incomplete grade submissions would no longer be entitled to any grade based compensation.

    Students must sign the "Phone Free Pledge" promising to not utilize their mobile device for any reason during the group sessions. Cell phones (including smartphones) and laptops may not be used AT ALL by students during tutoring sessions. These tutoring sessions do not work by osmosis, and students must be paying attention (not texting or using social media) for this program to work! Students who use such devices at all during the semester forfeit any right to grade based compensation. Parents are strongly encouraged to utilize a service that allows them to track usage of data and text messaging by the hour (using this valuable service, you can truly see how much phone activity is happening for every hour of the day). Parents that do not utilize this type of tracking forgo any opportunity to dispute claims of technology usage by CTS.

    Notification will be sent to the STUDENT after any unexcused absences. If, upon receipt of such notification, the student wishes to contest the absence, the student must email within 48 hours of the absence notification. The official record for any session will be the SIGN IN SHEET at CTS. If a student fails to sign in for any session, it will be recorded as an absence.

    Any Early Registrant who has "Successfully Completed" the program by meeting the four (4) requirements are entitled to grade based compensation according to the schedule below if their final course grade is lower than a B.
    Grade of B- = $100
    Grade of C+ = $175
    Grade of C = $250
    Grade of C- = $325
    Grade of D+ = $400
    Grade of D or below = $475

    Refunds are given to the credit card used to pay for the sessions.

    Students requesting a refund after the semester has ended must make their requests VIA EMAIL no later than Friday, December 23rd, 2022. Email must be sent to and contain a screenshot or photograph of the final course grade. If such a request is made, CTS reserves the right to confirm the grade via an official grade report.

    To withdraw from the program, the participant must send email to stating they are withdrawing from the program. Withdrawal CAN NOT be done via the phone, or by "telling someone" at CTS that they are dropping the class or withdrawing from the program. If a student drops the class but does NOT withdraw from the program, payments WILL continue as scheduled until email notification of program withdrawal is received. Early withdrawal will result in forfeiture of any and all prepaid money, regardless of whether the student is an early registrant or a standard registrant. Excused withdrawal for reasons of health, family emergencies, or acts of God may be granted by the Director assuming appropriate documentation is submitted. Withdrawal due to academic performance will not result in any compensation.
