Not sure where to find info on program sentence credit. My husband (currently incarcerated) has been made aware by some fellow  inmates who work in prison industry or enrolled in school, that the state is offering Inmates  contrats to cut time off of their sentencing. Apparently this came into effect this year Jan 1st
This is specific to inmates convicted prior to 1998 at 50% sentencing.

Lots of rumors go around, can't believe everything that is said. 

If things changed it would be in the Administrative Code Title 20

I think all class M and X charges are automatically excluded from any program credit.
