What is Contact Equivalent?

If you are a student in a health field and you are not taking 12 semester hours, you may still meet the requirements for full-time enrollment status if your clinical classes have "contact hours" that can be counted. Ask the nursing department secretary to email the scholarship office at and include the following: Your C# (Calhoun ID), your class schedule and the contact hours eligible for each health course, as well as your email address. Someone from the scholarship office will contact you to let you know if your contact hours can qualify as credit hours to meet the full-time student requirement.
