"The institutions shall award credit to students successfully completing approved instructional programs, or demonstrating competence or learning equivalent to that provided by such programs as either semester credits or quarter credits. It is assumed that study leading to one semester credit represents an investment of time by the average student of not fewer than 48 hours for class contact in lectures, for laboratories, examinations, tutorials and recitations, and for preparation and study; or a demonstration by the student of learning equivalent to that established as the expected product of such a period of study. Study leading to one quarter of credit represents two-thirds of that set as the standard for one semester credit."
