Credit Hour Definition The evaluation and assignment of academic credit in the Degree Completion Program coursework is based on a combination of compressed class meetings and the completion of substantive outside class work designed to develop student competency on defined learning outcomes. This approach provides assurance that the semester credit hours awarded for Degree Completion Program coursework is equivalent to similar coursework offered in other bachelor-level academic programs. The class meetings may occur as face-to-face meetings or as facilitated online discussions. Further, substantial outside class work requires a significant amount of time to complete and submit research papers, applied summary papers, examinations, case studies, team projects, computer-assisted lessons and interactive tutorials. Students can expect to spend 10 to 15 hours per week on class work outside of the class meeting times. Classes meeting in a face-to-face format must adhere to the contact times set for the schedule. In other words, if a three-credit hour course is scheduled for five weeks from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m., every effort must be made to utilize all of that contact time. Hybrid or online classes must include substantive activities equivalent to the class contact time and work load of a face-to-face class. The Degree Completion Program learning model is based on experiential learning. In this model, learning is grounded in the student’s own experience and is developed through reflection, observation and application. The teacher acts as a facilitator of the learning process, which integrates instructional strategies, learning materials and technology resources designed to encourage a high level of student involvement and engagement. This learning process requires the students to integrate concrete experiences, reflection and observation through active experimentation, problem solving and applied learning activities to further advance themselves as learners and to demonstrate competency in achieving the learning outcomes for the individual courses and the program as whole.
