Federal law now requires all accredited institutions to comply with the federal definition of the credit hour.
For all TMU degree programs and courses bearing academic credit, the “credit hour” is defined as “the amount of work represented in intended learning outcomes and verified by evidence of student achievement that is an institutionally established equivalency that reasonably approximates not less than:
1) one (1) hour of classroom or direct faculty instruction and a minimum of two (2) hours of out-of-class student work each week for approximately fifteen weeks for one semester” hour of credit, “or the equivalent amount of work over a different amount of time;”
2) “at least an equivalent amount of work as required in paragraph (1) of this definition for other academic activities as established by the institution, including laboratory work, internships, practica, studio work, and other academic work leading to the award of credit hours.”
This credit hour policy applies to all courses at all levels (graduate, professional, and undergraduate) that award academic credit (i.e., any course that appears on an official transcript issued by the College) regardless of the mode of delivery, including, but not limited to, self-paced, online, hybrid, lecture, seminar, and laboratory.
Example: a 1-unit course equates to 50 in-class minutes X (times) 15 semester weeks = (equals) 750 in-class minutes
