Unit of Credit

A unit of college credit represents three hours of student time each week for a semester; one hour of scheduled classroom lecture and two hours in outside preparation. A longer time is scheduled for laboratory courses since more of the work is done in the classroom. One full quarter unit is equal to two-thirds of a semester unit.
