Standard for College Credit

Each credit granted at Roxbury Community College requires a minimum of one hour of classroom or direct faculty instruction and a minimum of two hours of out of class student work each week for approximately fifteen weeks, or the equivalent amount of work over a different amount of time. Credit is granted based on this definition of engagement with the learning process and on evidence of student achievement with intended learning outcomes. Other academic activities leading to the award of credit, including but not limited to, laboratory work, internships, practica, and studio work require the same standards for both engagement and achievement.
