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