College-level Course Credits:
The credit for each course is indicated after the title in the course description. One credit is equivalent to one collegiate semester-hour credit. Each semester hour of credit given for a course is based on the “academic hour,” which is 50 minutes of formalized, structured instructional time in a particular course weekly for fifteen weeks.
Developmental Course Credits:
Courses numbered 01-09 do not satisfy graduation requirements and do not transfer to four-year institutions. Developmental courses carry 1 to 4 credits for the purpose of tuition payment, calculation of course load, and enrollment status (fulltime/part-time).
