Credit Time Calculator

Offenses committed after June 30, 2014 fall under the new credit time levels as outlined by IC 35-50-6-3.1. The Credit Time Calculator can be used to determine earned credit time based on the highest degree of offense or whether the defendant is a credit restricted felon, in conjunction with either a date range of confinement or a number of actual days served.


According to IC 35-50-6-3.1 and IC 35-50-6-4:

Credit Class A: A person (1) who is not a credit restricted felon; and (2) who is imprisoned for a Level 6 felony or a misdemeanor or imprisoned awaiting trial or sentencing for a Level 6 felony or misdemeanor. Serve 1 actual day; earn 1 credit day.


Credit Class B: A person (1) who is not a credit restricted felon; and (2) who is imprisoned for a crime other than a Level 6 felony or misdemeanor (i.e. Murder, Levels 1-5) or imprisoned awaiting trial or sentencing for a crime other than a Level 6 felony or misdemeanor (i.e. Murder, Levels 1-5). Serve 3 actual days; earn 1 credit day.


Credit Class C: A person (1) who is a credit restricted felon (see IC 35-31.5-2-72); and (2) who is imprisoned for a crime or imprisoned awaiting trial or sentencing. Serve 6 actual days; earn 1 credit day.


Credit Class D: Disciplinary level that may be imposed for violations of (1) a rule of the Department of Correction; (2) a rule of the penal facility in which the person is imprisoned; (3) a rule or condition of a community transition program. Serve 1 actual day; earn 0 credit days.


For offenses committed prior to July 1, 2014, the default calculation is based on Credit Class I where the defendant earns 1 day of credit time for each day the person is imprisoned for a crime or confined awaiting trial or sentencing.

Calculation Tips
Tip 1

Earned credit time should be calculated based on the most serious offense of which a person is convicted.

Tip 2

The Credit Time Calculator is not applicable for time served on home detention. Effective July 1, 2014, a person confined on home detention as a condition of probation accrues one (1) day of credit for each day the person is confined on home detention as per IC 35-38-2.5-5(e). Additionally, a person confined on home detention in a community corrections program accrues one (1) day of credit time for each day the person is confined on home detention, plus any earned credit time as per IC 35-38-2.6-6(b).

Tip 3

You may enter either a date range of incarceration to determine the number of days confined or simply the number of actual days served. The calculator will then display the number of credit days earned based on either the highest degree chosen or the selection indicating that the defendant is a credit restricted felon.
