Academic Load

A full-time load in the A.S.C.T. program is defined as 12 or more credit hours. Students with a credit load of between nine and 11 credit hours are considered half-time, while students with a credit load of fewer than nine credits are considered part-time.

NOTE: For full veteran’s benefits, however, students must carry a minimum of 12 standard class sessions per week. A standard class session is one 50-minute lecture hour per week or two 50-minute laboratory hours per week.

Financial Assistance

Financial assistance for this program is provided through Palmer’s Financial Planning Office. The basic premise of federally funded financial aid programs is that since the student will be the primary beneficiary of the education, he or she is expected to contribute to the cost of the education from assets, earnings and other financial resources.

The Financial Planning Office provides access to available grant and loan programs and student debt counseling. Before the department can provide services to a prospective student, however, the individual must be conditionally accepted to the A.S.C.T. degree program. Full-time enrollment for financial aid purposes is defined as 12 hours or more per trimester. To maintain financial assistance, the student must complete a minimum of 12 credit hours per trimester.
