A credit is equivalent to one collegiate semester hour credit. Each semester hour of credit given for a course is based upon approximately one academic hour (50 minutes) of formalized, structured instructional time weekly for 15 weeks (or equivalent) by each student. In addition to instructional time, a scheduled evaluation or examination period is given for each semester hour of credit. Courses may consist of lectures, out-of-class study, laboratory and shop study or their combinations.
