Policy Statement on Expected Student Academic Work per Credit

Workload expectations in this policy are an estimate of the amount of work needed for an average student to earn an average grade.  Course grades are based on the quality of the work submitted, not on hours of effort.  Workload expectations per credit do not vary with the method of delivery of the course or the length of the academic term. Students should plan on spending 3 hours, per credit hour, per week.  Therefore, they should plan on spending approximately 12 hours per week for one 4 credit hour course.
