* 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.
