My computer was previously controlled by my college and now that I have graduated and no longer have access to their facilities and resources, I am unable to update my computer as they controlled when it would update. How can I remove their settings?

    Run regedit and clear out the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsUpdate then reboot.

    Yep -
    Assuming you're talking about just the update settings.
    If you're talking about other settings - you may be on intune (AAD joined), - go remove yourself from the "Access work or school" section of the "Accounts" section of the Settings app.
