Semester credit hours [replaces definition found of page 17 of the 2010-11 catalog]
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 or studio 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. Completion of graded outcomes that measure student achievement of learning objectives are comparable to those achieved via the standard delivery method.
