Credit hour definition

Undergraduate day semester and graduate day semester

One credit hour is equal to one hour of classroom or direct faculty instruction and a minimum of two hours of out of class student work each week for approximately 15 weeks for one semester.

Online and graduate evening terms

Courses offered in our accelerated and online programs “mirror” the requirements of traditional courses in outcomes and assessment of learning.

Note: For the purpose of defining credit hours, one hour of classroom or direct faculty instruction is defined as a 50-minute class period.
