Quarter credit hours
The academic year is divided into three quarters from October through December,  January to March, and March to June.

For courses taught in the standard delivery method. One quarter credit hour is counted for each clock hour of class or lecture time – or each two or three clock hours of Laboratory work – per week during the quarter. A three quarter credit hour lecture course, for example, meets three hours per week over ten weeks.

For courses taught in the accelerated delivery, on-line/blended delivery, or other non-standard format. One quarter credit hour consists of not less than twenty-five hours of instruction, individual learning activities [such as pre-course assignments, course assignments, preparation time], and team-based collaborative learning activities. Completion of graded outcomes that measure student achievement of learning objectives are comparable to those achieved via the standard delivery method.



Semester credit hours
The academic year is divided into two semesters from August through December and January through May.

For courses taught in the standard delivery method. One semester credit hour is counted for each clock hour of class or lecture time – or each two or three clock hours of Laboratory work – per week during the semester. A three semester credit hour lecture course, for example, meets three hours per week over fifteen weeks.

For courses taught in the accelerated delivery, on-line/blended delivery, or other non-standard format. One semester credit hour consists of not less than thirty-eight hours of instruction, individual learning activities [such as pre-course assignments, course assignments, preparation time], and team-based collaborative learning activities.
