Credit Hour

In accordance with Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities credit-hour policy, effective July 1, 2011, Bastyr University defines one credit hour as follows:

An amount of work that achieves intended learning and student achievement outcomes through no less than one hour of classroom or direct instruction plus a minimum of two hours of out-of-class work for each week of the quarter.

For courses that meet fewer than 11 times during the quarter, the equivalent amount of direct instruction and out-of-class work is required in order to be awarded one credit hour.
