CVCC offers some programs that are considered credit/clock hour conversion programs based on federal regulations set by the US Department of Education.
Students enrolled in one of the following programs may receive less federal student aid than the amounts indicated on their award letters:
Determination of enrollment status for federal student aid is different because these programs include one or more courses that cannot be counted towards the completion of two-year Associate degree programs. Enrollment status for these programs involve determining for each course the clock/contact hours a student may sit for each semester. The total lecture and lab contact hours are multiplied by 16 weeks, then divided by 37.5 to obtain the number of converted credit hours.
Students who are enrolled or plan to enroll in one of these programs should contact the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid with additional questions.
