COURSE TIME/CREDIT REQUIREMENTS

The CAP has established a policy that all courses will begin at the standard time for the block.

Normally, the academic credit for Smith College courses shall be awarded at the rate of 4 credits per course. With the exception of seminars, 4-credit courses may not require less than the equivalent of 150 minutes of lecture/discussion per week (where 110-120 minutes of laboratory/performance/studio equals 50 minutes of lecture/discussion). Seminars for 4 credits must require at least 110 minutes of class time per week. Exceptions to these guidelines will require the approval of the Committee on Academic Priorities and the Faculty. Courses may be offered for other than 4 credits if justified within the context of both the department's curriculum and the College's curriculum. The credit for such courses (e.g., 2-credit courses and 6-credit courses) shall be determined through reference to the weekly class time requirements for the 4-credit course described above. (Ref. Code of Faculty Legislation and Administrative Practice.)
