- Credit Hour

In accordance with Middle States Commission on Higher Education guidelines, The American University of Paris clearly specifies how credit hours are assigned to courses. This policy ensures consistency and clarity in how the number of credit hours for a course, the number of classroom contact hours, and the expected hours of work outside the classroom are calculated. Most AUP courses carry four credit hours. However, some courses carry more or fewer credits. The number of in-class hours can also vary.
