Academic Course Credit

Course credit is determined by the number of hours per week a class is in session, with some exceptions such as laboratory, physical education, band and choir. A course scheduled to meet three times per week for a semester merits, therefore, three semester hours credit. No more credit than the amount stated in the catalog is permitted in any course. To receive credit all work must be done under the supervision of a member of the faculty. Students should expect to spend a total of two to three hours per week for each credit hour enrolled.
