StatusCredit Hours

Three-Quarter Time 9 – 11

*Clock/Credit Hour Conversions - The determination of enrollment status (full, ¾, ½, or less) is, by Federal Regulations, different for the following five programs of study:

  • Autobody - D60100
  • Collision Repair & Refinishing - D60130
  • Computer-Integrated Machining Technology - D50210
  • Dental Assisting - D45240
  • Electrical Electronics Technology - D35220


This determination of enrollment status is different because the programs have one or more courses that cannot be used toward a two-year degree program. Enrollment status determination for the above programs involves totaling for each course the clock/contact hours a student takes each semester. The total hours are then divided by 30 to obtain the converted credits. The converted credits are then used to determine the enrollment status.
