ARTICLE XII. Howard University Credit Hour Assignment Policy

www.provost.howard.edu/Policy/CreditHourPolicy.pdf

The Credit Hour Assignment Policy is intended to ensure that the number credits awarded per each transferable course reflects Howard University’s academic rigor and contact hour requirement. University transfer credit hour values are based on the credit hour value assigned by the originating institution and the appropriate conversion is made to yield semester credit hours when deemed necessary. If the academic calendar of the originating institution is not following a semester system, the appropriate conversion of the assessed credit hours of course work will take place based on the calendar of the originating institution and the formula for converting to semester credit hours. (Quarter hours are multiplied by .667 to convert them to semester hours)
