Student credit hours (SCH) are reported to the Colorado Department of Higher Education and are the basis for multiple state funding mechanisms.  SCH are identified as RI (eligible for state funding) or non-RI (cash funded). High-level headcounts are also available via the CSU Student Credit Hours Distribution report (sis022).”  

Courses with high rates of unsuccessful student completion (defined as earning less than a C-) may indicate issues in the course material, pedagogy, logistics or student preparation that need to be addressed.

Course Fill Rates

The fill rate is defined as the section student headcount divided by the capacity.  The numerator, denominator, and calculation account for cross-listed courses.  Low fill rates create a higher cost per FTE for the department.  Identifying these sections and combining or eliminating them can create cost savings. 

Service load refers to the student credit hour production that supports majors outside the college/department that delivers the course.  It is the instruction delivered “in service” to other majors.

Course Credit Reassignment

Course credit reassignment is the process by which student credit hour production from a course (or a portion of a courses depending on the faculty percentage) is reassigned from the department delivering the course to the department that pays for the faculty.  This is made possible by the data in the SCAIT system.
