    The deadline to register as an Early Registrant is Sunday, January 7th, 2024 at 11:59pm. Any student who registers between Monday, January 8th, 2024 and Friday, January 19th is considered a Standard Registrant. Any student who registers on or after Saturday, January 20th is considered a Late Registrant.


    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, January 8th and Thursday, April 25th. 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. *For students taking MATH-M119, there will likely be an exam review session on the fourth and 12th Sundays of the academic semester. Being out of town on either of these dates will result in an unexcused absence.

    Each Wednesday, students must complete a "Grade Submission" via email. This email should include one screenshot of the EdFinity 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 have a cumulative EdFinity grade of 90% or higher. Given that most EdFinity questions allow unlimited attempts, this should not be difficult to obtain.

    Students who register are agreeing to the "Phone Free Pledge" promising to not utilize their mobile device OR SMARTWATCH for any reason during ANY of their sessions. Students who violate this will be sent an email emphasizing the need to cease and desist with phone activity. Any early registrant who violates this policy and receives such an email are ineligible for any grade based compensation at the end of the semester.

    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.

    Early Registrants who have "Successfully Completed" the program by meeting the five (5) 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+ = $200
    Grade of C or below = $300

    Refunds are given to the credit card used to pay for the sessions. Such refunds are only available to Early Registrants; Standard Registrants and Late Registrants are not eligible for Grade Based Compensation.

    Students requesting a refund after the semester has ended must make their requests VIA EMAIL no later than 14 days after the date the final exam was completed. 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 an 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, Standard Registrant, or Late 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.
