Study Guidelines

Students are encouraged to plan in two hours of study time per credit hour into their semester schedules. The following would apply to a full-time student (12 credit hours):

12 hours in class   

 x

2 hours of work out-of-class       

     = 24 hours of work out-of class

12 hours in class   

+

24 hours of work out-of-class                  

    = 36 hours of class and work            

Important Fact:
Overloading work / school hours is the #1 reason students do poorly, have to drop their classes and lose their money, or find themselves on academic probation or suspension!
