Excessive Developmental Study Hours

A public community college district may not receive funding for developmental coursework taken by a student in excess of 18 semester credit hours or the equivalent. Up to 9 additional semester credit hours of ESOL courses and/or interventions is allowed, bringing the maximum to 27 semester credit hours. Developmental hours funded by the state during the summer of 1996 and thereafter shall be counted toward the student’s total number of developmental hours at a given institution. CTC reserves the right to charge a higher tuition rate to students who attempt developmental study courses in excess of the 18 semester credit hours or equivalent or 27 if ESOL taken.
