Credit versus Non-Credit


Credits are also referred to as Academic Credits, Credit Hours, and Semester Hours.  Each course is assigned a number of credits which generally indicates the number of hours per week the class meets; i.e., a three credit course generally meets three hours each week. Please refer to the College Catalog for course descriptions and credit hour determination.


Non-Credit classes and programs do not lead to a degree or certificate, but are designed to assist individuals with their personal and professional development. At Delta those are usually offered through the Lifelong Learning Department. For more information, please contact Lifelong Learning Department at (989) 686-9444 or or visit the website at
