Semester Credit Hour Policy

  • KCU defines the academic hour as 50 minutes of instruction time and the semester credit calculations by delivery type:

    • Lecture/small groups - 15 academic hours = 1 semester credit
    • Laboratory experiences - 30 academic hours = 1 semester credit

    This policy will be reviewed by curriculum committee at its September meeting prior to final approval by the Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs, Provost and the Dean of the College of Osteopathic Medicine.
