COVID-19 Vaccinations: The CA Dept of Public Health has mandated COVID vaccinations for all clinical personnel (paid and unpaid) — including students and volunteers. Although it’s not a requirement for the didactic part of the program, it is a required to be eligible for the clinical placement portion of the program.
I understand that without receiving the vaccine, MTS cannot guarantee clinical placement, and I will likely not be placed in a clinical rotation.
Now for the basics…

TUITION, FEES, BOOKS AND SUPPLIES
At Modern Technology School, we do things a bit differently than your average school! Whether you’re in our X-Ray Technician Program, studying to become an Ultrasound Vascular Technologist, or working towards your Medical Assistant Certification, our programs offer all-inclusive tuition!
That means your tuition, fees, registration, books, scrubs and supplies are inclusive in the total price of the course!
Each Program’s respective tuition/cost are listed on the disclosure statement under Financial Aid. As always, when in doubt, feel free to ask us questions.
Program schedules will be distributed to students at the beginning of the course; and are subject to change. The admissions office will be able to provide information for each program schedule at your first meeting.
What Happens if I Withdraw from the Program?
A student who has withdrawn from the School, and who was in good academic standing, may be reinstated upon application to the Re-Admission Committee provided that no more than six (6) months have elapsed since last date of class attendance. The applicant for re-admission may be required to take a proficiency exam to test their retained knowledge. Space availability will be considered.
If remedial work is deemed necessary by the faculty, the student will be advised of the schedule in writing by the School. A new enrollment agreement will be written on all re-admissions and tuition, supplies and fees may be assessed relative to any remedial work required.
Students may appeal any decision regarding their progress, probation, suspension, or dismissal. Appeals must be submitted in writing to the Re-Admission Committee within two weeks of the action causing the appeal. An appeals board will review all appeals and notify the student of its decision within 30 days.
Leave of Absence
A leave of absence may be granted for emergency reasons only. The student must submit a written request to the Program Director for approval. Supporting documentation may be required. A one-time leave of absence is granted for up to a maximum of sixty days during the duration of the program. Students are not eligible for clinical placement during a leave of absence. Re-admission to the program after return from a leave of absence is based upon class and clinical space availability.
Student Tuition Recovery Fund
California Law requires that upon enrollment a fee be assessed in relation to the cost of tuition (Educational Code Section 94343). These fees support the Student Tuition Recovery Fund, a special fund established by the California Legislature to reimburse students who might otherwise experience a financial loss as a result to untimely school closures. Institutional participation is mandatory. As of January 1, 2015 these fees have been reduced to $0.
To be eligible you must be a California resident and reside in California at the time the enrollment is signed, or when you receive lessons at a California mailing address from an approved institution offering correspondence instruction. Students who are temporarily residing in California for the sole purpose of pursuing an education specifically those who hold student visas, are not considered a California resident.
To qualify for STRF reimbursement you must file a STRF application within one year of receiving notice from the Bureau that the school is closed. If you do not receive notice from the Bureau’s, you have four (4) years from the date of closure to file a SRFR application. If a judgement is obtained, you must file a STRF application with two (2) years of the final judgement.
You are eligible for the Student Tuition Recovery Fund (STRF) if all the following applies to you:
You are a student in an education program, who is a California resident, or are enrolled in a residency program, and prepay all or part of your tuition either by cash, guaranteed student loans, or personal loans.
Your total charges are not paid by any third-party payer such as an employer, government program or other payer unless you have a separates agreement to repay the third party.
You are not eligible for protection from the STRF and you are not required to pay the STRF assessment, if either of the following applies to you:
You are not a California resident, or are not enrolled in a residency program.
Your total charges are paid by a third party, such as an employer, government program or other payer, and you have no separate agreement to repay the third party.
The State of California created the Student Tuition Recovery Act (STRF) to relieve or mitigate economic losses suffered by students in educational programs who are California residents, or are enrolled in a residency programs attending certain schools regulated by the Bureau for Private Post Secondary Education.
You may be eligible for STRF if you are a California resident or are enrolled in a residency program, prepaid tuition, paid the STRF assessment, and suffered an economic loss as a result of any of the following:
1. the school closed before the course of instruction was completed.
2. the school’s failure to pay refunds or charges on behalf of a student to a third party for license frees or any other purpose, or to provide equipment or material for which a charge was collected within 180 days before the closure of the school.
3. the school’s failure to pay or reimburse loan proceeds under a federally guaranteed student loan program as required by law or to pay or reimburse proceeds received by the school prior to closure in excess of tuition and other costs.
4. There was a material failure to comply with the Act or this the Division within 30 days before the schools closed or, if the material failure began earlier than 30 days prior to closure, the period determined by the Bureau.
5. An inability after diligent efforts to prosecute, prove, and collect on a judgment against the institution for a violation of the Act.
However, no claim can be paid to any student without a social security number or a taxpayer identification number.
