Study 25-35

  • Across the nation, colleges recommend that students study at least two hours per unit per week, or 25-35 hours per week for a full-time student taking 12-17 units. 
  • You will also spend 12-17 hours in class each week, depending on the number of units you are taking. 
  • The total time commitment for your classes is quite reasonable, around 40-50 hours per week, very similar to the time required for a full-time job.
  • If you think of school as your full-time job, you will be able to commit the hours required to succeed.  So remember, study 25-35 hours per week and you will succeed
