    I Need help converting Quarter Units to Credit Hours on the application! There is an option (per class) of credit hours from 0-20.00, with 0.25, 0.33, 0.5, 0.67, and 0.75 as decimal values, and from what I understand, credit hours means how much time was lecture+lab per week. Below are four examples of what I filled out for classes, and I don't know if it's correct:

    KINE 250 (Healthy Living), 4 units = 3.67 credit hours [2 2-hour lectures]

    CHEM 128 (General Chemistry II), 4 units = 5.33 credit hours [3 1-hour lectures, 1 3-hour lab]

    BIO 375 (Molecular Biology Lab), 3 units = 6.50 credit hours [1 1-hour lecture, 2 3-hour labs]

    BIO 400 (Special Problems), 1 unit = 0.75 credit hours [research, 1 hour a week officially, in reality research is about 5 hours a week, but for purposes of this conversion...)

    NOTE: I also took into account that our classes start not on the hour, but at X:10 minutes after, so that lowered some credit hour values. Please let me know if this is all correct, or terribly wrong... Thanks!!

    I'm having trouble understanding your math, but if I were you, just call AACPMAS and ask them. Does your transcript have a conversion on it? My official transcript says something like "1 credit = 4 credit hours" because the way my school does credits is cray. Maybe yours does too?
