Standard Course Meeting Patterns

Summer

The contact minutes listed in the chart are for one class period (Start Time to End Time). To determine if your course will meet the minimum number of contact minutes required by the TBR, you must consider the following:

  1. The Credit Hour value of the class (1-hour, 2-hour, 3-hour, etc.) Each credit hour requires a minimum of 750 contact minutes.
  2. The number of times the class will meet during the part of term (POT) during which it will be taught.

For assistance with determining course contact hour requirements, go to Scheduling / Term Planning Aids and refer to the Contact Meeting Table for the semester you are interested in.
