Catalog 2010-2012

Course Credit Expectation

An academic semester contains 15 weeks (approximately 75 days) of instruction. Students enrolled in courses whose mode of instruction is lectural/discussion-based should expect to have 15 hours of class contact over the length of the semester for each hour of credit available. Students enrolled in courses whose mode of instruction is activity-based should expect to have 30 hours of class contact over the length of the semester for each hour of credit available. Students enrolled in courses offered on a shorter-term basis should expect their class contact to be proportionately increased to be comparable with semester long course expectations.
