The required first course at ABTU (CIS-100 Information Technology Fundamentals) is mandatory and designed to help the student understand and utilize online learning tools and give them an introduction to the fundamentals of information technology. This class will help the student succeed at ABTU. If a new student has not progressed academically by the midterm of his or her first course (end of the third week of class), ABTU may cancel the student’s enrollment. Equivalent courses taken previously by students will be accepted by ABTU as transfer credit for this course.
If a new student receives a D or an F in the first course (CIS-100), the student may not repeat the course until he or she submits an appeal with the school. A student cannot move on in the program until he or she passes the first course with a C or higher. Failing the first course two (2) times will cause the student to be dismissed from the school without the opportunity to appeal a second time.
Any pre-paid tuition will be refunded in accordance with the schools refund policy.
Title IV students will have their Pell grants recalculated, a Return to Title IV funds will be calculated, and Direct Loans will not be disbursed. A potential post-withdrawal disbursement may be due to the student.
