Coursework Standards and Expectations


In a lecture class, the preponderance of the student’s work is done outside of class-e.g., reading, working on assignments, writing papers, preparing for class and/or performing other required homework or coursework. A typical three-unit lecture class requires at least six additional hours of student work per week.

In a laboratory class, the majority of the student’s work is done in class. A lab class may require additional hours of student work per week.

In a learning center, virtually all of the student’s work may be done in class.

In all cases, students carrying a full-time class load of 15 units should expect average workloads of 45 hours per week, inclusive of time spent in class.
