Credit Hours and Honor Points

A credit hour is the unit of credit earned for the completion of a subject that normally meets one hour each week for 14 weeks or two hours each week for seven weeks. For courses in which contact hours are unverifiable (e.g., online), credit hours are based on either the analysis of the syllabus and/or the analysis of student learning outcomes.

A system of honor points is used to evaluate the quality of work done by the student in completing courses. Honor points are awarded on the basis of the point value of the grade, multiplied by the number of credit hours carried by the course.
