Semester Credit Hour Measurement

ABTU adheres to the Carnegie formula for credit hours.  The Carnegie formula states that one (1) credit hour per semester equals 15 contact hours plus 30 hours of outside study and preparation.  This is comparable to the educational industry standard.

This standard is applied to all 6-week ABTU courses.
