50/60 Minute Credit Hour

MCLE states determine CLE credit hours by dividing the running time of instructional programs by either 60 or 50 minutes. For example, a 90-minute program may earn 1.5 hours of CLE credit in a state that bases its credit on a 60-minute credit hour, and 1.8 hours in a state that bases its credit on a 50-minute credit hour. Some jurisdictions round down credit to the nearest 1/2 or 1/4 hour.

The following jurisdictions have a 60-minute credit hour:
