Definition of Credit Hours
UHC defines a credit hour as a reasonable approximation of the student learning outcome equivalency of, at a minimum, a Carnegie Unit. Course developers ensure that the quantity of student learning required per credit is the equivalent of approximately 45 hours of course work for the semester (not less than 50 minutes of classroom or direct faculty instruction and a minimum of two hours out of class student work each week for 15 weeks for one semester of credit) through activities that 1) address and demonstrate student competency in the defined learning outcomes; and 2) draw upon recommended instructional practices identified by the University.
Definition of Distance Education (Online) Credit Hours
At the University of Holy Cross, three credit hour courses physically meet for 150 minutes per week over the course of a sixteen week semester. Although distance education courses do not meet in a physical location, instructors take the above formula in consideration when they determine course content and assignments utilizing tools in BlackBoard (i.e. discussion board, posting of assignments, digital drop box, and timed online testing). Instructional delivery methods fulfill engaged time requirements for each credit hour.
