Fee Descriptions - Fall 2017

Registration Fee

This fee is a refundable fee charged one time per semester regardless of how many credit hours a student registers for during the semester.  This fee is $43 per semester.

Service Fee

This fee defrays the cost of several free services that Schoolcraft provides to students, such as career services, student activities, graduation, parking and admittance to the SC Fitness Center each semester the student is registered.  This fee is $7 per credit.

Lab Fees/Learning Management Fees

This fee is used to cover the cost of special materials, equipment, student assistants, specialized support and other services.  Our learning management system fee (currently Blackboard) is $12 per class, with an additional fee of $10 for classes held in computer labs, allowing the use of additional technology that is otherwise not available in a standard classroom.

Excess Contact Hours Fees

The College charges $108 per excess contact hour with a maximum of 4 excess contact hours per class.

An excess contact hour occurs when the weekly class meeting hours exceed the class credit hours.  For example, if Biology meets 4 hours per week, but Biology is a 3 credit hour class, the student is charged a $108 excess contact hour fee.  If a Nursing class meets 10 hours per week, but the Nursing class is a 4 credit hour class, the student will be charged a $432 excess contact hour fee.

Instructional Equipment Fee

This fee is used to defray the increasing cost of maintaining, upgrading, and replacing the wide variety of electronic equipment and personal computers used in our classrooms.  Software purchases, maintenance agreements, and upgrades are also covered by this fee.  Every student is charged $9 per credit hour for this fee.

Infrastructure Fee

This fee is used to defray the increasing costs associated with maintaining and enhancing the College’s buildings, facilities, and campus grounds.  Deferred maintenance and depreciation of campus infrastructure is also covered by this fee.  Every student is charged $7 per credit hour for this fee.
