Academic Standing Workshop:
Why Am I On Probation? (page 6)

Let's Talk About Units

  • Recommended formula for success: 2 hours of study time for every hour spent in class (1 unit = 1 hour in class per week)]
  • Example: one 3-unit class
    • 3 hours in class plus 6 hours study time = 9 hours per week
  • If a student enrolls in 12 units, the total time to budget for school work is 36 hours (12 hours in class plus 24 hours study time = 36 hours) – that’s why 12 units is considered full-time
