PROGRAM LENGTH

The length of a degree program refers to the number of semester credit hours (SCH) needed to complete it. The total number of SCH required for a given degree program will be reduced by the amount of allowable transfer credit from other institutions, and/or relevant portfolio (equivalent) credit as determined by the Academic Committee. [Example: if a TSU degree program is 48 SCH in length, and you are allowed 12 SCH via relevant transfer credit from another school plus 12 SCH of relevant portfolio (equivalent) credit for professional or life experience, then the length of your TSU degree program would be 24 SCH (or about eight courses).
