The University is a four quarter, year-round operation system that provides an essential flexibility for adult students. Each quarter is 3 months in length with the equivalent of 11 weeks of classroom instruction conducted in a 3 day block each month. AUHS’ credits are expressed in a quarter unit; one-quarter unit normally represents no less than one hour of class work and two or more hours of outside study per week for one quarter. One and one-half (1 ½) quarter units are equivalent to one (1) semester unit, and one (1) quarter unit is equivalent to 2/3 of a semester unit.
After the completion of the final exams on the 11 weeks of each quarter, a break is given in between quarters for a minimum of one (1) week to a maximum of two (2) weeks long.
Definition of Quarter Credit Unit
One (1) quarter credit hour equals 10 hours of lecture, 20 hours of laboratory work and 30 hours of externship/field instruction. One hour lecture consists of a 10-minute break.
All courses require a minimum passing grade of B or higher.
