When enrolling in college what is the difference between a unit and a credit?

There are not many schools that work on a unit bases anymore, but the schools I do know of equate one unit to three credit hours per semester. However, depending on the school, there may be differences. In other words, it would also depend on whether the school operates on a regular two semester academic year, a tri-semester, or quarter semester.

Credits same as units in college?

For schools that operate on a unit system, typically one unit is equivalent to three regular semester credits.

How many associate's degrees are considered equivalent to a bachelor's degree to employers?

An Associates Degree is essentially 60 semester units, and a Bachelors is approximately 120. A semester unit is a semester unit, and the "status" or "category" of a semester unit does not change in the junior or senior years of a bachelors degree program. In other words, a 3 unit class in your freshman year, carries the same weight as a 3 unit class in your senior year. Semester units are semester units. You will find the "equivalent to" scenario posted in many jobs advertised by cities and counties. In some job postings, they will actually give you the total number of semester units required to be "equivalent to" a particular degree program. I have never seen a distinction as to any factor which limits where those semester units came from, as long as it is an acredited college or university (including junior colleges). This said, the computation is simple: A single AA Degree is worth 60 semester units; a second AA Degree is worth an additional 60 semester units, for a total then of 120, and so on. Two AA's then are worth one BA, while four AA's are worth two BA's (4 x 60=240 units). The Human Resource Managers I have spoken to, agree that this is the correct interpretation.

How many semester hours is 15 credit units?

It depends on the college or university. Some colleges (very few anymore) use one unit as the equivalent of 3 semester hours. Most schools currently use one semester hour as equivalent to one credit. If a college uses a unit system, I would suggest you contact the Office of the Registrar at the school you are interested in.
