Credit Value System

Credit values have been assigned to most courses based on the following definition from the National Transcript Guide: "Credit is the unit of value that expresses the quantity of course work required. The number of credit hours of a course is usually determined by the number of hours of class per week multiplied by the number of weeks in a term or session. One credit hour is usually assigned for each hour which meets per week over a term or session."

Courses will be deemed non credit and not assigned a credit value if they are less than 10 hours in duration, have an AC/AN grade (Attendance Complete/Attendance Not Met) or are considered non-Post Secondary.

The following legend is only a guideline for assigning credits.
