Course Lengths

Oklahoma City Community College offers courses of varying lengths. Most policies and procedures of the College relate to 16-week courses since that is the standard course length. Policies and procedures will be prorated for courses of non-standard class lengths. Students should realize that, although the number of weeks a class meets can vary, all credit classes must meet a certain total number of hours to fulfill the requirements for their credit value. For example, a 16-week, three-credit course will meet three class-hours each week. A four-week, three-credit course will meet 12 class-hours each week.

This information should be taken into consideration when students are planning their academic workloads.
