Q. What are the expectations on studying for a course? How many hours should you study for a 4 credit class?

Answer

The general rule for studying for a course weekly is:

  • 2 hours for each hour in class for an easy course
  • 3 hours per hour in class for an average course
  • 4 hours per hour in class for a difficult course

You would need to determine the difficulty of your class.  The Instructor may tell you on the first day of class or if not then you could ask them. 

If you decide to sign up for tutoring to help with a class, contact your Campus Library/ARC.  Thank you for using ASK US.
