Contact Hour Charge – An added tuition charge is assessed for any course which has instructional contact hours greater than the credit hour value of a course. The fee for excess contact hours is currently set at the in-district tuition rate, but is subject to change as tuition rates change. This rate is set the same for all students regardless of residency status. The maximum number of contact hours a student may be charged each semester is set at three, limiting the current overall contact hour charge.

Example: BIO 101 Principles of Biology I is a four credit course which meets each week for three hours of lecture and three hours of lab, for a total of six instructional contact hours per week. In this course, the credit value of the course (4) is less than the weekly hours of instruction (6) by two (2) hours. There is a charge added to the student’s bill for these two extra contact hours.
