  • Credit Hour Policy:
    “The credit hour (or semester hour) is the unit by which academic credit is measured. (a.) In most instances, a credit hour represents one 50-minute class meeting and two hours of out-of-class work per week for a 15-week semester. Adjustments are made for terms of other lengths to ensure equivalent amounts of work. (b.) Zero or one hour in laboratory or studio work usually represents satisfactory completion of two or three SO-minute laboratory or studio periods and two hours of out-of-class work per week for a 15-week semester. Zero credit laboratories are generally tied to four-credit courses, while one-credit laboratories are tied to three-credit courses. Adjustments are made for terms of other lengths to ensure equivalent amounts of work. (c.) One credit of internship/practicum/student teaching usually represents at least the equivalent work required for one 50-minute class meeting and two hours of out-of-class work per week for a 15-week semester. Adjustments are made for terms of other lengths to ensure equivalent amounts of work. (d.) One credit of independent study, honors thesis or master's thesis credit usually represents at least the equivalent work required for one SO-minute class meeting and two hours of out-of-class work per week for a 15-week semester. Adjustments are made for terms of other lengths to ensure equivalent amounts of work. (e.) One credit of asynchronous online courses is equivalent to two hours of faculty-led instruction and four hours of homework per week for a seven week semester.” – Manual of Academic Policies and Procedures, Section XVI.G Academic Credit.
