Credit Hour Policy
Duquesne University's academic year is divided into two semesters, Fall and Spring, of approximately 15 weeks each. Summer sessions, as well as some accelerated sessions offered throughout the year, are variable in length.
The Office of the University Registrar regularly audits scheduled course offerings to ensure compliance with credit hour requirements through its processes for scheduling each semester. This review is conducted across all schools, disciplines, and course levels, and modes of instruction. The Office of the University Registrar maintains an historical record of its review of each semester.
