Credit Hour


An academic credit hour is a unit of measure representing an hour (50 minutes) of instruction over a 16-week period in a semester. It is applied toward the total number of hours needed for completing the requirements of a degree or certificate.

One academic credit hour for a laboratory class is equivalent to two scheduled hours of laboratory experience per week (total minimum of 100 minutes).
