College classes can be scheduled in a variety of ways. It is your choice when to attend classes. To assist you in successful schedule planning, review the following guidelines.
Generally, one unit equals one hour of class time. For example, a three unit lecture class meets three hours per week. Full-time student status equals 12 units.
For each unit you take, consider at least two hours of study time per week. For example, taking 12 units might require 24 hours of study time per week.
In addition to class time and study time, consider family commitments, leisure time and work hours when building your semester schedule.
