The points associated to modules to allow you to build towards University Awards.
How schools measure a student's progress toward a diploma or degree. The number of credits assigned to a course depends, in part, on how much time is spent in class each week. For example, most courses offered by colleges on semester calendars are worth three credits. Credits are also referred to as "credit hours" or simply, "hours."
Prior tertiary or professional development study which has been completed by an applicant and which is assessed as having some academic value. See Advanced Standing.
A credit is the point value attached to a course. The number of credits assigned to a course directly relate to the amount of class time per week. Credits are used in the calculation of GPA and fees.
a term used interchangeably with "semester hours".
Certification that part or all of a course has been completed successfully
Numerical value assigned to each course depending on its academic demands. In order to graduate from ULV you need to complete at least 124 credits and to maintain a cumulative 2.0 grade point average.
the value assigned to a course, usually based on the number of hours of class contact hours per week per semester
(1) The recognition awarded for the successful completion of course work. Credits are based on the number of times a course meets in one week during a regular semester. (2) The quantitative measure of recognition given to a course, stated in semester hours.
To attribute to an academic record, the accreditation units for a similar course of instruction
The value given to a course. May be related to the number of hours of instruction. The majority of academic courses are worth three credits. Many degrees require 120 credits. (See also Unit.)
The certification that a student has passed a particular course. Students can obtain one or more credits for each course taken and have to obtain a given number and type of credits to qualify for the award of a degree.
To acknowledge work done, to cite.
kreditas (one academic year usually corresponds to 40 credits)
certification that a student has passed a specific course. Students can obtain one or more credits for a course and are required to obtain a certain number and type of credits to qualify for a degree. Also called "diploma" or "certificate."
The unit of measure awarded for the successful completion of coursework. A minimum of 128 semester hours is required in each bachelor's degree curriculum.
See “Academic Unit
The numerical weighting unit for courses normally representing 13 to 15 hours of formal lectures or the equivalent. Most courses have a value of three (half-year course) or six credits (full-year course).
Acknowledging the source for a given fact.
One credit is defined as the equivalent of one hour of instruction per week for a semester (roughly three and one-half months). Students are expected to spend time studying on their own in addition to formal instruction time. AU credits reflect an amount of study time equal to that spent at a conventional university in formal classroom sessions. Normally, AU courses are either three-credit (one semester) or six-credit (two semesters), which corresponds to three and six semester hours of credit at conventional universities. Some courses in the Bachelor of Nursing program carry a practicum component and have a credit weight of four.
See Course, Earned Credit, and Load Credit
The weight value assigned to a course. A course that normally meets for 3 hours each week throughout the academic year is worth 6 credits; a course that normally meets for 3 hours each week in one semester is worth 3 credits. Ensemble performance courses in Music which meet on a regular basis throughout the academic year are worth 1 credit.
A measure indicating the relative weight assigned a particular course. A credit can be obtained in a number of ways, for example, by successfully completing a full-credit course, two half-credit courses or four quarter- credit courses. In the program descriptions, the following symbols are used following the course number: One and a half (1.5) credits (in Music): (‡) Full-credits (1.0): (*) Half-credits (0.5) do not have a symbol added to the course number. Quarter-credits (0.25): degree symbol (º)
You are doing units for credit if you are doing them to count towards an award, such as a degree or diploma. This is normally the case unless you are a non-award student or unless the unit cannot be taken for credit with (NCCW) one that you have previously passed either at Macquarie or elsewhere.
York University uses a credit system to calculate your progress towards your degree. Each course is worth a certain number of credits. The number of credits is indicated by the fifth digit in the course number, e.g., 1400 6.0 indicates the course is worth 6 credits.
Has several closely related meanings; a) A measure of the total instructional content of each course, usually related to the total hours of instruction. The term "credits" is relatively modern shorthand for the phrase "credit hours". As an example, a History course which meets for three one-hour sessions a week over a traditional 15-week semester, would be identified as a 3-credit course. The laboratory portion of a Chemistry course, on the other hand, would typically require 3 or 4 hours of scheduled time in the lab each week to earn one credit. Graduation requirements (and tuition charges) are based on credits. b) Courses which are primarily designed to earn academic credits toward a degree or certificate are often called "credit courses", as distinct from "non-credit" courses that are designed for some other purpose (see " Continuing Education"). c) In discussions of grade-point calculations, "credit" is sometimes used to mean any course in which a grade of A-F was earned -- as distinct from courses taken as " audit".
Recognition of attendance or performance in an instructional activity (course or program) that can be applied by a recipient toward the requirements for a degree, diploma, certificate, or other formal award.
A numerical value assigned to a course. One credit usually corresponds to one hour of class time.
A credit is the slot machines equivalent to coins. When you insert coins or bills into the machine you are awarded one credit for each coin. You are also awarded credits for winning spins. Each credit awarded is equivalent to one coin. You can turn your credits back into coins by pressing the Cash Out button on the machine.
A completed and passed unit of study recorded on the student's official college record.
A unit by which an institution measures its courses. The number of credits assigned to a course is determined by the number of class hours per week.
Papers or points which can be counted towards a qualification. It is often possible for students to be given credit at Otago on the basis of passes from other New Zealand universities (transfer credit) or from non-university or overseas tertiary institutions (ad eundem credit).
Colleges assign a given number of credits to a particular college course based on a standard of one credit for very hour per week that the course is held. Colleges with semester calendars require fewer credits for a degree than do colleges with quarter calendars. There are many courses requiring laboratory work or other extensive work outside the classroom.
In the course descriptions the credit value of a course, where given, is shown in parentheses following the course number. In general one credit represents one hour of instruction or two to three hours of laboratory work per week throughout one term of a Winter Session. A credit is approximately one term hour. Most courses at UBC have a 3-credit value and have a duration of one term.
The quantitative measurement assigned to a course. At the University of Alberta a credit is equivalent to one unit of course weight.

A policy of granting credit, but no grade, for satisfactory completion of a specific course. See the catalog for specific information.
The standard unit of measurement used by OCNs to indicate volume and breadth of learning. All learning achievement is described in terms of â€œcreditâ€. The number of credits indicates the volume of learning for which the NOCN definition is used.Each unit has a credit value. 1 credit is considered to be what can be achieved in 10 nominal learning hours. (please note, this is different to credits awarded for programmes registered before Aug 31 2004 when a credit was worth 30 nominal learning hours. The 10 hour credit has been introduced to come into line with the national definition of credit.)
A unit of an academic program earned toward a degree by successful completion of acourse. A credit weight of 0.5 is normally assigned to a one-term course. Credit weights are used in the calculation of averages for academic standing. Most courses have credit weights of 0.5, but some have weights such as 0.25, 1.0, 2.0. Further explanation is on "Grading System".
recognition granted towards meeting the requirements of an award course, either on the basis of prior study, or professional experience. If you've partially or fully completed studies at another institution, you may be eligible to receive credit towards your UNE University degree. This means you don't have to repeat subjects or courses that you have successfully completed elsewhere. Credit is often referred to as 'Advanced Standing'.
A unit used to record courses taken. Each credit typically represents the number of hours spent in class each week. Hence a 3-credit or 3-unit course would commonly be a class that met three hours each week for one semester or quarter.
Students can take college courses for credit or for non-credit. Credits from course work may be accumulated toward the completion of a certificate or a degree. A course is typically worth 3, 4, or 5 credits, and associate's degree generally require at least 60 credits, bachelor's degrees require 120 credits.
The numerical value assigned to a certain amount of academic work in a course. Usually one credit is allowed for a total of three hours of effort per week over the course of a quarter, including time spent in class and on work outside of class. In lecture/discussion classes one credit is allowed for each instructional hour spent per week, with the understanding that a student will spend two hours per week on work outside of class for each instructional hour.
A measure of volume of learning. The University defines one credit as corresponding to approximately ten hours of learning time ie including all taught or supervised classes and all private study and research. Each module corresponds to a specified number of credits.
Credit awarded for a college course which exempts or "releases" the student from taking the course on the college campus. Exemption credit appears on the student's transcript, is calculated into the total earned credit hours, but does not affect the grade point average (GPA).
learners earn credit(s) for achievement; from September 2004, credit value is based on 10 hours of notional learning time. credits are ascribed to units of assessment; credit will form the basis of a national framework of qualifications, becoming the common currency or value across different awards and qualifications

The unit of measurement some institutions give for fulfilling course requirements.
At the option of each academic division, some courses are offered on a credit/no-credit (satisfactory/fail) grading basis as indicated in the Course Description section of this catalog. Also, a student may elect to take one class on the CR/NC option (see “Credit/No-credit Grading”).
Units of course work earned by a passing grade that apply towards a college degree.
each course carries a certain number of credits; credits are accumulated over a period of academic study until you have the necessary number for graduation. The number of hours a class meets per week most often determines the number of credit hours a course is assigned.
IFMA recognizes one credit as 15 contact hours of instruction. Courses submitted to IFMA for credit will be reviewed based on this criteria.
In the VCAL, students are awarded one credit for completion of accredited curriculum in accordance with the course requirements for VCAL.

The numerical reward received for completing a University course is described in semester hours of credit. Freshmen normally register for 14-16 semester hours of class credits. A total of 120 credits is required to graduate with a bachelor's degree; therefore, students planning to graduate in four years must average 15 credits each semester.
A process which is used to quantify the amount and level of learning which has been achieved.
No grades are received for these courses. You will get credit for a C or better; you do not get credit if your grade is lower. Credit/no-credit courses are not figured in your g.p.a. You can only take one-fourth of your course work on credit/no-credit basis, and usually you cannot take courses in your major this way. Freshmen may register for courses on a credit/no-credit basis, providing they are enrolled for 12 semester hours for grades. After 20 percent of the class meetings, you cannot change from credit/no-credit to a letter grade or from a letter grade to credit/no-credit. See the Grades chapter for more detail.
A counting system used to determine the amount of class time that a student has completed, usually based on hours of instruction. Every course has an assigned number of credits, which are used to calculate the cost of tuition. The number of credits that a student has completed are recorded on a permanent record or 'transcript.'
A subject in which a student is not required to enrol as it has been formally acknowledged that the student has previously satisfied or completed the subject matter; thereby reducing the number of subjects needed to complete the program. Credit for a subject requires the student to be able to demonstrate prior study at tertiary level which had traversed the same syllabus, or was able to completely satisfy a challenge examination. It will be at the discretion of the Dean of the Faculty of enrolment to determine whether credit or advanced standing, towards the award for which a candidate is enrolled, will be approved in recognition of subjects previously completed at Bond University or elsewhere, regardless of when the subjects were completed.
the 'currency' providing a measure of learning outcomes achieved in a notional time at a given level. Usually associated with credit-based modular courses (see ECTS).
A credit is a unit of academic measurement equivalent to a single-weighted one-semester course.

The value placed on a course. Most courses are worth three or four credits, which means that you will spend three to seven hours in class per week for one semester. Other terms which mean generally the same thing are â€œsemester hoursâ€, â€œhours of creditâ€, â€œsemester hours of creditâ€, and â€œcredit hoursâ€.
Measure of the quantity of work in a course; sometimes referred to as a "unit". Also refers to satisfactory completion of a course in credit/no credit grading.
Designed to allow students to take classes outside of their major without receiving or having to receive a letter grade. If a grade of "C" or better is earned, the student receives credit (CR). If a grade of "D" or "F" is earned, the student receives no credit (NC). The student must complete the option form prior to the deadline date published in the academic calendar and submit it to the Admissions and Records Office before this date. The credit/ no credit choice is permanent.
A unit of measure used to reflect the amount of instructional time required of a course. A credit hour is based upon the contact hour requirement of a course and will vary according to the individual course. Credit hour is used to determine your progress toward your degree, diploma, or certificate, and the payment of fees is also based on credit hour(s).

A credit is a VeriSign transaction type that transfers funds from the merchant's account back to a customer's credit card. It is the only way to handle a refund after a transaction has been settled. This type of transaction is usually performed when a product is returned to the merchant. A credit can be performed in the Transaction Terminal area of VeriSign's Manager or through a merchant's storefront application. Check refunds can only be done via credit card or through a non-electronic, paper check. A credit is a unit used in the calculation of the accumulated value of the courses you take. Each course is worth a certain number of credits, usually 1 to 4. A student accumulates credits by passing courses. A certain number of academic credits is required for a degree program or a certificate program. Usually the number of hours spent in class each week is equal to the number of credits for that course.
Credit is sometimes given for relevant topics previously studied or for which a student is given an exemption.
Credit provides a means of quantifying learning outcomes achievable in a given number of notional hours and at a given level. In this way previous learning can be identified which can be assessed and ‘credited' against an award. CREDIT TRANSFER Credit transfer is the process by which that credit which is relevant can be assigned to a programme other than that on which it was gained.
Similar to the term unit, refers to the value earned by successful completion of a course.

An award or documentation that a learner has met certain standards and completed a class.
Is granted upon successful completion of a course that meets for a minimum of 8,100 minutes of instruction.
A quantified means of expressing equivalence of learning. Credit is awarded to a learner in recognition of the verified achievement of learning outcomes at a specified level. One credit equates to 10 notional hours of learning successfully achieved and works on the basis of achievement at threshold standard.
Recognition granted towards meeting the requirements of an award, either on the basis of prior study, or prior experience, assessed as equivalent in content and level to the course(s) for which the credit is sought.
A measure of academic progress granted for each course completed; most academic programs require students to complete a certain number of credits for graduation.
acknowledgement that a specific course has been satisfactorily completed and is registered on the student’s official record. Credit is received for any passing grade. Another meaning of "credit" is that of a measure of credit, for example, "four credits" or "four units of credit" for a course. Normally a minimum of 25-30 hours of class time, research and study is required for each unit of credit that is earned for a class.
a numerical system for evaluating a student's progress toward a degree, described in terms of semester hours (see definition of semester hours). In order to earn a degree in the normal four-year period, the student will average at least 16 semester hours credit per semester since the minimum credit required for any bachelor's degree is 128 semester hours.
