Why Am I on Probation? (page 6) - Counseling Department
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
