Part 3 – Enrollment and Classes

It’s Easy to Enroll in Classes

  • PDCCC offers a variety of classes.
  • You may enroll in face-to-face, online, and hybrid courses.

12 credits hours= full-time

  • You must be enrolled in at least 12 credits to be considered a full-time enrolled student

But, what exactly is a credit hour?

  • 1 credit = 1 hour class time per week
    • One credit consists of about one hour of class time per week.

  • 3 credits = 3 hours class time per week
    • A student who is taking a three-hour course can expect to be in class about three hours per week.

NOTE: Courses with a lab such as sciences or accounting, etc. may have additional time requirements.

The Story of “Pre-requisites” (What the heck is that?!)

  • To be allowed to take some classes, you must complete prerequisite courses
  • Our counselors can help you know the requirements for each course


  • The next consideration to enhance your success as a first semester student is to enroll in a SDV 100 or SDV 108 class.
