Credit Hours

The Stamps School of Art & Design, consistent with all units at the University of Michigan, uses the Semester Hour to award credit. One semester hour of credit represents at least three hours of work each week, on average, over a period of fifteen to sixteen weeks, including in-class time plus out-of-class preparation, project, and study time.

The work expectation for a three-credit hour studio / lab course is 6 class (studio/lab) hours + 3 out-of-class production/preparation hours, on average, per week, for fifteen to sixteen weeks.

The work expectation for a three-credit academic or lecture course is 2 class lecture hours + 1 class discussion hour + 6 out-of-class preparation hours, on average, per week, for fifteen to sixteen weeks.
