Semester and Degree Requirements

Semester

The length of a semester shall consist of 90 teaching days, no fewer than 16 calendar weeks and no more than 18 calendar weeks of instructional time. The inclusion of breaks or holidays within any particular semester shall be at the discretion of the College so long as the College is in compliance with the criteria that defines a week of instructional time and is in compliance with the criteria for awarding semester credit hours.

The credit hour assigned to each course of this program varies depending on its lecture, tutorial and practical work hours in a week. One lecture/contact hour per week per semester is assigned one credit. That is, a three credit hours course has 48 class hours. A faculty member is assigned to teach each of the courses. If the course is taught by more than one faculty member, then one of the members is designated as the coordinator of that course.

A full-time load of five courses per semester at the BHM level would equate to approximately five contact hours per day or 25 hours per week, for a minimum of 450 hours per semester.
