Training Time


FT = Full Time 3/4 = Three-Quarter Time 1/2 = One-Half Time

-1/2 = Less than One-Half, More than One Quarter 1/4 = One Quarter or Less

-1/2 Time - Chapter 1606 does not have less than one-half time, more than one quarter time.

For these benefits, -1/2 time is treated as 1/4 time.




USING THE TABLE:  Determine the number of weeks in the term. Determine training time by reading across the credit hour line to the number of weeks per term column. For example, 12 credits taken in a Fall or Spring 15 week term is full-time.  A 6 credit course taken in an 8-week summer term is also full-time but the same 6 credit course taken in a 12-week summer term is only 3/4 time.

HACC Fall and Spring Terms are both 15 weeks. Summer terms are 12, 8, and 6 weeks in length. Be sure to use the correct term length when figuring training time.  Click Training Time Equivalency Table Printer Version for a PDF of the above table.

EAP National Guard Students:

These tables does NOT apply to the PA National Guard Education Assistance Program (EAP). Students using EAP in the summer must take 12 credits in each term, including summer, to be considered full-time.

Chapter 33 Training Time Equivalents

These number reflect the semester hour equivalents.  Note:  In order to receive the monthly stipend amount (BAH Equivalent), a student must be enrolled greater than 50%.
