Clock Hour or Credit Hour?
Clock Hour or Credit Hour? Are you in compliance?
Schools are not Clock Hour or Credit Hour but the programs of study that the Schools offer are. SFA Financial Aid Credit Hours granted by the U.S. Department of Education are not necessarily the same as the credits granted by Accreditors and State Boards. It is important for school administrators to gain a deeper understanding of this topic and how it relates to the awarding of SFA (Student Financial Assistance). Our goal is to assist your School to remain in compliance with the Department of Education, the Accreditor and the State.
