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 $206 in FY2014 to $261 in FY2018. However, this calculation includes the State Universities Retirement System (SURS) pass-through funds, which are 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 $172 in FY2013 to $191 in FY2018.
