Costs, Fee and Payment Information

  • What are the guidelines for earning college credit?

    As of August 2012, the Higher Learning Commission, (HLC) determined 1 college credit requires 15 hours of seat time.

    Usually workshops and training will earn .5 credit for a daylong session (5.5 hours of seat time and a two-hour reflection assignment, totaling 7.5 hours). Traditional college-level course work will earn a pre-determined number of credit hours. This is identified by the institution offering the course at the time of enrollment.
