WINTER 2018: TUITION AND FEES
                                BILLABLE CONTACT HOUR SYSTEM

About the Billable Contact Hour System
The method used to calculate the cost of instruction at Monroe County Community College is based on billable contact hours.

What is a billable contact hour?
The cost for attending a course is determined by the course’s billable contact hours, rather than credit hours. A billable contact
hour reflects an amount of time that a student spends in direct contact with an instructor, laboratory equipment or other
instructional setting.
Charging by billable contact hours more fairly distributes the cost of instruction to those students who receive extra instruction.
Based on this system, only students who are the recipients of additional instruction will pay for additional
billable contact hours.

How are billable contact hours for a course determined?
Several factors are considered in determining the billable contact hours of a course. The main factor is the number of hours the
student is expected to either be in a class or in another “instructional” setting (such as a lab or clinical setting) in a typical week
for a full-semester course. For the majority of courses at MCCC, the credit hours and the billable contact hours are the same.
Course information in this schedule and the                                       online course registration system includes both a credit hour and a billable
contact hour for every MCCC credit course.

What types of financial aid are available to students?
There are a variety of ways MCCC students can get help in paying tuition, including grants, work-study, scholarships, payment
plans and loans. To find out more about options, contact the Financial Aid Office at 734.384.4135.
