Courses with Credit Equivalent Hours
Lehman College courses generally carry a credit value equal to the number of weekly contact hours. In certain coursesgenerally developmental or compensatory in naturethe number of weekly contact hours may exceed the credit value. These additional contact hours are designated "credit equivalents" or "equated credits." For courses with credit equivalents, tuition is charged on the basis of contact hours and not of credits. Even if a course offers no credit, it is nevertheless billed according to contact hours. The maximum semester rate applies to these courses alone or in combination with credit-bearing courses.
