Time Commitment for Academic Success

At Frederick Community College, in all credit courses, students are expected to invest a minimum of two hours completing out-of-class course work for every hour of in-class instructional time. For example, in a 3-credit course, students experience at least 37.5 hours of instructional time and should invest a minimum of 75 hours in out-of-class time preparing for the course and completing assignments. In a traditional 15-week, 3-credit course, this equates to an average minimum of 5 hours per week.  For online and hybrid courses, students can expect active instructional time and “out-of-class” course work comparable to face-to-face courses with the same number of credits.
