Frequently Asked Questions
What does the term "credit" mean?
Credit represents how many hours you spend in class a week.
For example, WRIT 101 College Composition is a 3 credit class. You may:
meet MWF (Monday, Wednesday, Friday) for 1 hour each day
or TR (Tuesday, Thursday) for 1 ½ hours each day
or R (Thursday) evening for 3 hours
On average, for every credit spent in class students can expect to spend 2 hours outside of class studying a week
With the above WRIT 101 example, since it is 3 credits you can expect to
spend a total of 6 hours a week outside of class studying
(3 credits x 2 hours) = 6 study hours
