How are the 150 semester hours counted?

The criteria for counting credit is that the hours or credits must be shown as “earned” on the college transcript, and such credit must not be duplicative of other coursework. Course grades, pass/fail scoring, and GPA are not factors; we simply look to the “credit earned”. However, repeat credit is not allowed for the very same course, or a course at another school of the duplicative content. Occasionally, transcripts fail to remove repeated course credits. We suggest you recalculate your hours earned, and check the subtotals by semester, and recalculate the overall cumulative total.
