10.18. Credit Hour

A semester hour of credit is given for the equivalent of one 50-minute class period per week for a semester of 17 weeks. In the case of laboratory work, one semester hour of credit is granted for each two or more hours of laboratory work. With the exception of accelerated classes, the length of classes during summer and evening sessions will be proportioned according to the clock hours of a course meeting during the regular day classes.

Internship experiences for credit hours required the student to be registered and enrolled for the semester in which the internship is earned. Students must work 40 hours for each one hour of credit. For example, to earn three credits for the internship, 120 work hours must be completed over the course of the semester. A six-credit internship requires 240 work hours.
