2024-2025 Undergraduate/Graduate Catalog

Time Expectations for Graduate Student Course Equivalent Work

Graduate students are expected to invest a minimum of three hours of out-of-class student work for every one hour of classroom or direct faculty instruction each week for approximately fifteen weeks for one semester. At least an equivalent amount of student work time applies to lab work, internships, practica, studio work, as well as other academic work that leads to the award of credit hours.
