AIC uses the industry-standard Carnegie Unit to define credit hours for both traditional and distance courses.
Each credit hour corresponds to a minimum of 3 hours of student engagement per week for a traditional 14-week course or 6 hours per week for a 7-week course. This time may be spent on discussions, readings and lectures, study and research, and assignments.
Most courses at AIC are three credit hours.
|Credits to be earned||Hours per week,
|Hours per week, 8-week course||Hours per week, 14-week course|
|1 credit||6 hours||5 hours||3 hours|
|3 credits||18 hours||16 hours||9 hours|
|6 credits||36 hours||32 hours||18 hours|
|12 credits||72 hours||63 hours||36 hours|
