In order to meet the minimum requirement for graduation of 240 credits for Undergraduate programs and 120 credits for Graduate programs, a student is generally expected to execute a load of 30 credits per semester.
During the summer school, students may enroll in a maximum of 18 credit hours.
Students who do not successfully complete 30 credits each academic semester may not be on track to graduate in four years. Students may need to complete a fifth year of study or take summer school classes to earn the required 240 credits towards graduation. This also applies to students who participate in programs abroad. Please note that Financial Aid/Scholarships are awarded for eight semesters only, and that Financial Aid/Scholarships are not awarded during summer terms.
Moreover, if a student participates in any program abroad (UGRAD, Work and Travel, etc.) it is still his/her responsibility to complete all requirements of AUCA programs, even if it means that the student may need to extend his/her studies beyond four years.
Students must have a minimum of:
One ECTS credit is understood to be equal to 30 academic hours. The duration of an academic hour is 50 classroom minutes. The volume of work in a given course is divided into classroom and independent work. In most cases the majority of the total course work is allocated to independent preparation – about 60%. The volume of independent work for each academic course is determined by the curriculum.
Maximum quantity of credits per term for the full-time students:
