Campus Classmate Offenders in Rehabilitation and Treatment Act - Campus CORT Act - Authorizes the Attorney General, through the Office of Justice Programs, to make demonstration grants to accredited universities and colleges to establish up to five programs for campus classmate offenders in rehabilitation and treatment (Campus CORT), modeled after the statewide local drug court programs throughout the United States, for each fiscal year for which funds are provided.

Requires Campus CORTS to: (1) be established at accredited colleges or universities; (2) have jurisdiction over substance abuse related disciplinary cases involving students that may or may not be criminal in nature, including illegal drug use, abuse of prescription drugs, alcohol abuse, and other issues; (3) pursuant to Attorney General regulations, establish appropriate quasi-judicial standards and procedures for disciplinary cases; and (4) impose as the ultimate sanction expulsion from school. Prohibits involvement in a Campus CORT of any student deemed to be a danger to the community.

Directs the Attorney General to make grants to qualified universities and colleges, the National Association of Drug Court Professionals, the National Drug Court Institute, and other associations and experts to assist in establishing campus drug courts and provide training and technical assistance in support of the program.
