Credit Hour The number following the course title indicates the number of credits for which the course is offered. When the credit number is followed by “R,” the course may be repeated up to the total credit indicated. For example, 1 cr. R-6 means a course is offered for one credit but may be repeated up to a maximum of six credits. When the indicated credit is preceded by a “V,” the possible credit varies. For example, V 1-5 cr. means the credit varies from one up to a maximum of five. Normally, a credit represents 60 minutes of classroom instruction per week for one semester. The time required for each credit may be distributed in any combination among preparation, recitation, lecture or laboratory work.
