Credit HoursFederal guidelines adopted in July 2011 require that a credit hour must reasonably approximate the learning outcomes achieved in not less than one hour of direct faculty instructional contact with two hours of out-of-class work, per week, for each week of a fifteen week term.  Institutions may establish equivalencies that approximate this standard to allow for distance learning and other learning activities (such as laboratories, practica, internships, etc).  UW-Madison's Divisional Executive Committees have established credit hour policies that conform with these well-established conventions,
