Assignment of Credit Policy

The Art Academy of Cincinnati academic year consists of two 15-week semesters. An 8-week summer semester occurs during the summer at the start of each academic year.

In lecture/discussion courses requiring outside preparation, on hour of credit represents one hour each week of the term in class, and two hours of work outside class. In Studio Arts courses, one hour of credit represents three hours of studio time and space each week of the term. While Studio Arts classes meet for a minimum of 1.5 hours per week for each credit granted, they typically meet for two hours per week for each credit granted. The remaining time is for studio class preparation.
