Semester Credit Hours

County College of Morris follows the Middle States Commission on Higher Education’s Licensure Rules to define a credit hour.  Semester credit hour means 50 minutes of face-to-face class activity each week for 15 weeks (or the equivalent attained by scheduling more minutes of face-to-face class activity per week for fewer weeks in the semester) plus an exam week in one semester complemented by at least 100 minutes each week of laboratory or outside assignments (or the equivalent thereof for semesters of different length).
