Important! Read the following information before completing this worksheet.
Complete the following worksheet only if the institution offers any programs in clock hours OR that must be reported to the U.S. Department of Education in clock hours for Title IV purposes even though students may earn credit hours for graduation from these programs.

Such programs might include teacher education, nursing, or other programs in licensed fields.
