Time on Task Requirements
Regardless of the modality in which a course is being taught, NYSED requires that for every one (1) credit hour awarded, students must complete fifteen (15) hours of instruction and thirty (30) hours for supplemental activities. Depending on the length of a course in weeks, the way that instructional and supplemental time is divided per week may vary between courses.
The following chart breaks down the number of hours required per week for a three (3) credit course across varying term lengths.
Breakdown of Hourly Requirements by Term Length:
|14-15 Week Traditional Semester Course||8 Week Hybrid/Online Course|
|Instruction||Supplemental Activities||Instruction||Supplemental Activities|
|2.7 hrs/week||6.5 hrs/week||4.7 hrs/week||11.3 hrs/week|
|37.5 hrs/semester||90 hrs/semester||37.5 hrs/term||90 hrs/term|
