College Credit Hour

One college hour of classroom or direct faculty instruction and a minimum of two hours of out of class student work each week for 15 weeks for one semester of credit or equivalent amount of work over a different amount of time. For example, a three credit course is 3 college hours of classroom instruction and a minimum of six hours out of class student work per week for a 15 week semester. Laboratory work, internships, practicum, studio work, clinical placements and other work leading to credit hours will be at least equivalent to what is listed above. Out of class work is listed as a minimum estimate. Students should expect to spend more time on out of class work dependent upon the course.
