Units of Credit

A unit of college credit normally represents one hour each week of lecture or three hours of laboratory, or similar scheduled activity, during one full semester.

Grade Options

Courses will be designated as Letter graded and/or Pass/No Pass. The default for registration when options are offered is a letter grade. Students must select the Pass/No Pass option when registering and have up to the last day of instruction (prior to Final Exam week) to change the grade mode. This decision is irreversible. Students should be aware of the limitations of the pass/no pass option when fulfilling certain requirements for a degree, certificate or transfer. Please make an appointment with your Academic Counselor for additional information.
