Number sequencing next to course name means the following: first digit designates the number of lecture hours for the course; the second digit designates the number of lab, clinic or practicum hours; and the third digit designates the credit hours for the course.
Individualized learning support courses for students who need structured guidance, applied study skills, and instruction in time management strategies.
Students enroll in LC courses to help them progress toward independent, self-directed learning and the rigors of college work. LC courses must be taken in conjunction with courses being taken for credit; earn institutional credit only; may not be taken as electives to meet graduation requirements, and are not eligible for financial aid. In addition, students in the AGS/AGS* programs must either be concurrently enrolled in or have already successfully completed GS 102 (Study Strategies).
Students must register with permission of the Coordinator of Disabilities Services or the Director of the Learning Center for any combination of up to 3 total LC courses, not to exceed a maximum of 6 credits toward GPA during enrollment at NHTI.
At the conclusion of any LC course enrollment, students are encouraged to use the academic supports available to all students, such as Math Lab, Writing Center, Computer Lab, request for tutor, assistive technology, and computer-aided instruction. See the "Learning Center" section elsewhere in this catalog.

Students complete individual contracts consisting of a total of 45 contact hours. Students can register for LC 113 by Week 3 of the semester.
