Child Care Scheduling Guidelines

  • If you are registered for one class, you may register for up to 6 hours per week of child care or the number of hours required for the class, whichever is greater.
  • If you are registered for two classes, you may register for up to 15 hours per week of child care or the number of hours required for the class, whichever is greater.
  • If you are registered for three or more classes you may register for up to 25 hours per week of child care.  If your schedule exceeds 25 hours per week, you may register for the number of hours of your actual schedule. For example, if you have 15 hours of class time and 20 hours of work-study time during the week, you may register for 35 hours of child care.
  • In order to accommodate class schedules:
    Daytime students may register for hours of child care before 4:00 p.m.
    Evening students may register for hours of child care after 4:00 p.m.
    Weekend students may register for Saturday hours. (pending enrollment)
