Unit Defined

Printer Friendly, PDF & Email

One lecture hour and two hours of outside work throughout the semester ordinarily serve as a basis for one unit of credit. The number of hours required per semester unit of laboratory or other activity is approximately three, depending upon the character of the work. Thus, one semester credit hour of community college work should be approximately 48 hours of lecture, study, recitation, demonstration-discussion, and laboratory work or any combination thereof.
