Institutional Success - Instructional Cost
Cost Per Credit Hour measures total credit instructional expenditures divided by the total number of credit hours. The College’s cost per credit hour, as defined by the National Community College Benchmarking Project, increased from $215 in FY2015 to $272 in FY2019. However, this calculation includes State Universities Retirement System (SURS) pass-through funds, which is not controllable by the College. Excluding the state’s SURS pass-through amount, the overall instructional cost per credit hour has grown at a much slower rate, increasing from $177 in FY2015 to $203 in FY2019.
