Total instruction expenditures (Program 1) per student credit hour are reported by college and department for the past five years. This report in the Blue Book Archive contains these data for all years they are available.

For a complete list of available reports, please return to the Blue Book Introduction. See the Departmental Changes section of the introduction to review departmental mergers or other changes that may affect this report.


A credit hour is a unit of measure representing an hour (50 minutes) of instruction over a 15-week semester. Earning a Bachelor's degree at MSU-Bozeman requires completing a minimum of 120 credit hours. For example, a student who completes a three-credit course will have earned three credit hours toward a degree. Credit hours are also used to measure of the number of students taught by a professor. A professor who taught 100 students in a three-credit course generated 300 credit hours. A professor who taught 5 students in a three-credit course generated 15 credit hours.

Credit hours are reported here by level:

  • Lower Division: freshman and sophomore courses, numbered 100-299
  • Upper Division: junior and senior courses, numbered 300-499
  • Graduate I: master's-level courses, numbered 500-599
  • Graduate II: doctoral-level courses, numbered 600-699

Credit hours are distributed by subject area rather than by faculty member. Thus, the credit hours generated by a faculty member who teaches courses for two departments will be divided appropriately between those departments. Credit hours for courses in the subjects UH, (University Honors), USP (Undergraduate Scholars Program), and HUM (Humanities) are distributed to the departments of the faculty who taught the courses.

Instruction expenditures represent state funds allocated to departments to cover the costs of instructing students. This shows the cost of generating one credit hour in each department. However, not all the costs of instruction are distributed to academic departments. Instruction Computer Costs and Instruction Benefit Pool are budgeted as aggregates. A subject area such as ICS/IDS may generate student credit hours but show no expenditures because it has no departmental budget. Although the General Studies department generates credit hours by teaching freshman seminars, the department does not show instruction expenditures in this report because General Studies is funded through Academic Support (Program 4) rather than Instruction (Program 1).

Miscellaneous categories in this report are used for data that cannot be assigned to a specific department. The majors appearing in Agriculture Miscellaneous are majoring in agriculture education, agricultural operations technology, preveterinary medicine, and general agriculture. The majors under Engineering Miscellaneous are general engineering majors. Per student cost calculations for miscellaneous areas are not particularly meaningful.
