Academic Course Credit

All credit courses offered by the University may be applied toward any degree or certificate granted, except as stated by each department.

The amount of credit assigned to a course 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 hours 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.
