Calculating Tuition and Fees

To calculate your tuition and fees, you must consider the following items which apply to your student schedule:

Tuition Rates (per billing hour)

The cost for attending a course is determined by the course's billing hours, instead of credit hours. A billing hour represents an amount of time that a student spends in direct contact with an instructor or with laboratory equipment.

Senior Citizens*

If you're age 62 or older on the first day of the semester and a resident of the LCC district six months prior to the beginning of the semester in which you register, you now qualify for a reduced tuition rate of $43.00 per billing hour on classes at LCC. (Note: Michigan residents living outside the LCC district qualify for a reduced rate of $85 per billing hour.) These rates apply to LCC classes taken for audit or credit. Classes with zero billable hours are not covered by the tuition rate reduction. Senior citizens will continue to pay registration, course and facility fees.

About Billing Hours

What is a billing hour?
The cost for attending a course is determined by the course's billing hours, instead of credit hours. A billing hour represents an amount of time that a student spends in direct contact with an instructor or with laboratory equipment.

How are billing hours for a course determined?
Several factors are considered in determining the billing hours of a course. The main factor is the number of hours the student is expected to either be in a class or in another "instructional" setting (such as a lab) in a typical week for a full semester course. LCC courses range from one billing hour to more than 10 billing hours per course. The billing system caps the number of billing hours that can be added to a course. For the majority of courses at LCC, the credit hours and the billing hours are the same.
