Course Credit

Chicago College of Pharmacy

Course credits are generally determined according to the following formula: one credit is assigned to a course for three laboratory contact hours per week; two case discussion, recitation, or workshop contact hours per week; one formal lecture contact hour per week; or three contact hours of other activities per week. Each week (40 hours) of experiential education (IPPEs or APPEs) is equivalent to 1.5 credits. Exam time could be considered part of contact time such that the instructor would have the option to count time spent on assessments as part of contact time.
