3.04.004 - Credit Hour Assignment
The Board of Trustees recognizes that consistency in assignment of credit hours to courses and programs affects transferability of credits between institutions as well as eligibility of the institution for federal funding. Regardless of the mode of delivery, application of a consistent method in assignment of credit hours will ensure that the College’s courses and programs are of sufficient academic rigor, content, and depth. To this end, Community College of Beaver County must ensure that the assignment of credit hours is in congruence with the federal definition of credit hour and commonly accepted practices in higher education.
The Board of Trustees directs the President to develop procedural guidelines for the assignment of credit hours for all courses and programs inclusive of all modes of delivery.
