The unit by which Eastern measures its coursework is called a credit hour. The College assigns one credit hour to a class that meets the equivalent of one class hour per week during the semester. Courses offered during a term are assigned a credit value related to the number of class- hours involved in the course, typically from one to four credits. Some courses require time for laboratory work in addition to the time required for lectures. In general, laboratory sessions meet for two contact hours each week of the term for each credit hour awarded. Students should expect to spend at least two or more hours per week in out-of-class coursework for each credit hour.

West Virginia Higher Education Explorer
As part of an effort to streamline and modernize the state’s higher education accountability system, the West Virginia Legislature passed a bill in 2019 that allowed for the creation of Explorer – a new interactive online data portal that is now available on the Higher Education Policy Commission’s website (wvhepc.edu). Explorer makes data on key enrollment, student success, and degree production metrics more easily accessed by the public. Additional dashboards provide local data on factors such as the college-going rate, progress toward reaching the state’s educational attainment goal, and the percentage of students who complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. Explorer also includes interactive reports from the state’s P-20 data system on the pathways students followed from their 10th-grade year of high school through higher education, as well as the wages graduates earned after college. The P-20 data system is the result of an ongoing collaboration between the West Virginia Department of Education, HEPC, West Virginia Community and Technical College System (CTCS), and Workforce West Virginia.

Roe, M.D. Veterans Health Care and Benefits Improvement Act of 2020, requires educational institutions to make certain disclosures to students using federal military and/or VA education benefits. To ensure compliance with the law, we have developed the Shopping Sheet Information for Student Veterans/Veteran’s Dependents.

The cost of tuition and fees are different if a student is a WV resident or an out of state student. For information on the estimated cost, please visit College Navigator - National Center for Education Statistics. Please note that your final cost depends on you receiving VA benefits to cover for tuition and fees, books/supplies, and housing allowance; any aid to cover for the cost; taking extra courses such as prerequisites; retaking a failed course; changing your program of study which requires more or less credits, change in cost of living; a change in tuition/fees as approved by State Legislature, etc. Students should also visit Eastern’s web site for tuition/fees/and refund policies.
