Course Lengths

Oklahoma City Community College offers courses of varying lengths. Students should take into consideration the number of weeks a course meets a when planning their academic workloads.

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, 3-credit course meets 3 class hours each week. An 8-week, 3-credit course meets 6 class hours each week. Additionally, the length of the add/drop period aligns with the number of weeks in a course. Students should consult the academic calendar for the add/drop period dates in a semester.
