Courses

Course Credit and Numbering System

All courses are identified by a course ID. For example, “GE 2202” is the course ID for “Ethics” course. Additionally, every course is assigned a credit number. One credit hour requires a minimum of 15 hours of class attendance. A subject of 3 credit hours will require at least 45 hours in class. To qualify for the final examination in any subject, each student must have at least 80% of class attendance. In some exceptional cases, at the discretion of the Lecturer and/or the Dean of the Faculty concerned, this requirement may be waived.

All courses are assigned a four digit number with the following format: Credits (Lecture-Lab-Self Studying)

Therefore, GE 2202 Ethics has 3 credits (requires 3 × 15 = 45 hours in class), The three numbers in parentheses (3-0-6) would mean that the course has 3 hours of lecture, zero hours of laboratory, and expects 6 hours of self-studying.
