Courses where tuition is based on hours rather than credits:
Remedial courses at the College are charged based on the number of contact hours – not credits (except CHM 2*) — that the courses are scheduled to meet.

Developmental courses are also calculated based on the number of contact hours that the course is scheduled to meet. There are two developmental courses currently offered at the college. ENG 110 is a three credit course, for which tuition is calculated based on five contact hours it is scheduled to meet. (ENG 110 also has a 6th non-billable conference hour) HIS 11 is a three credit course and the tuition is based on the four hours it is scheduled to meet.

*    CHM 2 is a five-hour remedial course. The tuition charged for CHM 2 is calculated based on four hours not five, as this remedial course has a lab component.
