Certain vocational programs of study at Coastal Carolina Community College are considered to be “clock hour” programs for Title IV (Federal Pell Grant, FSEOG) purposes. A program is considered to be a clock hours program if:
- The program measures student progress in clock hours to receive state or federal approval or licensure.
- The completion of clock hours is required for graduates to apply for approval to practice applicable occupation.
- The program is one year or less in length.
The clock hours may be less than your actual registered credit hours and therefore your Pell may be reduced. Please see your financial aid counselor for the clock hour chart.
|Curriculum Code||Program Title|

|C55120||Basic Law Enforcement Training|
|D60130||Collision Repair and Refinishing Technology|
|D60460||Diesel and Heavy Equipment Technology|

Payment Periods and Disbursement Procedure
Aid for students enrolled in clock hour programs will be disbursed based on clock hours (actual time in class/lab) rather than on semester credit hours. See clock hour chart for your program of study to determine your clock hour enrollment status.
Disbursements for BLET, Cosmetology, and Cosmetology Instructor will be divided into two (2) payments, one at the ½ point of the semester and the other ½ at the end of the semester.
For clock hour programs, a payment period is defined not only in clock hours, but also in weeks of instructional time. Students must successfully complete the clock hours and the weeks of instructional time in a payment period to progress to the next payment period.
