What is a credit?

The credits for a course identifies how many hours per week that you will be in the classroom for that course.
A 3 credit course = 3 hours in class per week

How much time do you need for college?

2 to 1 Rule


To effectively balance your time, every hour (credit) that you spend in a class will result in you spending 2 hours outside of the class on homework.

You register for 6 credits = 6 hours per week in class. Using the 2 to 1 rule you would need to schedule 12 hours per week outside of class for study.

6 hours in class + 12 hours outside = 18 hours per week
