Each class in college is worth a certain number of "credit hours" which often relates to the number of hours that the students have that class per week (but not always). In order to graduate, colleges and universities require a certain number of credit hours. Hope this helps! Dr. B.

Each course is assigned a certain amount of credits, based on the number of classroom contact hours per week. Thus, if a course is three credits, then there are three hours of classroom contact time (three credit hours), per week through the completion of the semester.

I have one daughter at an university and she needs 12 credit hours per semester to be fulltime. I have another at a college and she needs 4 /credit hours per semester to be fulltime. Why is there such a difference

User Avatar

It depends on how many credit hours each class is. If each class is 4 credit hours, it is 12 classes. If each is 3 credit hours it is 16 classes. Most likely is is a combination of classes with different credit hours, so it is not possible to say how many classes 48 credit hours is in a individual situation.

Depending upon the course you select, this could range from 128 to 138 college credit hours. This is inclusive of the general education credit hours plus major credit hours.

To receive credit hours in this college, certain teacher require "extra attention", meaning oral intercourse. A credit hour could also be obtained by shouting "my dog raped me, and i had sex with my neighbors horse" to fellow students I sure hope this helps

Who is considered a junior in college?A full college schedule requires 15 credit hours per semester, 30 credits per scholastic year: thus a sophomore would have earned 60 credits and a student carrying credit hours in excess of 60 credit hours would be conisdered a junior in college.

Varies from college to college, generally about 120 credit hours It does vary although I believe that you get 24 credit hours for Unspecified General Education courses depending on your major, 32 credit hours for General Education courses which equals a subtotal of 56 credit hours. With Core classes you get 40 credit hours unspecified Core classes, and depending on your program of study or major it's 92 credit hours for main Core classes and 32 credit hour for unspecified Elective courses. The minimum required credit hours for a Baccalaureate degree is a grand total of 180 credit hours.

You sound confused. A college class is usually worth 3 credits because you take the class for 3 hours a week. If you take 5 classes a semester, you are taking 15 credit hours that semester, which means that every week of that semester, you will have to go to class for 15 hours.

One credit hour is equivalent to one college credit. In other words, a class that meets three hours per week throughout the semester, produces an accumulation of three college credits toward graduation requirements.

Certain colleges are a little picky as to the credits you transfer. Also, The curriculum varies from college to college. So, to answer your question, it depends on the college you are planning to transfer to. They probably won't allow you to transfer the entire degree program, only the credit hours. If the credit hours and classes meet their criteria for an associates, then they will consider that an associates. Just ask the advisers at the college you're going to attend in the future.

Most colleges consider 12 credit hours full time, so half time would be 6 credit hours. In graduate school full time is considered 9 credit hours.

User Avatar

depending on the school, most classes are 4 credit hours each. So 60 credit hours would be roughly 15 classes or about two years.

The average 3 credit hour course meets for 3 hrs. each week.

User Avatar

This is approximately one and one-half years of college. The exact amount will depend upon the course load the student takes.

Depends on who is asking. Most universities count 15 credit hours per credit. The state of PA allows 30 continuing education hours per college credit.

to become a sophomore you must have 30 credit hours.

User Avatar

Usually it is 12 or more Credit Hours. Anything less than 12 is part-time.

User Avatar

A little less than two and a half. Two and a half would be 75 credit hours

In college each class you take has credit hours assigned to it. The hours indicate how many hours you are in class per week, except for labs. So if you have a class twice a week for 1:30 at a time it would be a 3 credit hour class. As you progress through school you will gain hours and the more hours the closer to graduating you are. At my school it takes 125 credit hours to graduate with a bachlor's degree.

Most college/university students take about 12 credit/hours.
