FOR THE ASSOCIATE OF ARTS DEGREE, add General Electives*** to reach a total of 60 credits

For the CERTIFICATE or DEGREE, at least 12 credits must be from Perelandra College.

* Although traditional fifteen to eighteen week semesters do not apply to our classes, we use the standard semester/hour requirement of at least 40 hours of applied study for each credit, or 120 hours for each three credit class.

** Our classes are largely about reading and writing. As a general rule, we consider each ten pages of reading to equal one semester hour, and each 250 word page of writing to equal 2 semester hours.

*** General Electives can be college classes, credits earned through exam such as CLEP, or credit for life experience, which is explained on a handout we will send upon request.
