generally speaking, a semester = 3 credit hours, and a full year course = 6 credit hours. This should be true for most Ontario schools, but I'm not sure if the system is different for other provinces.

if there's a lab for a particular course (1 semester course), it's 4 credits

thanks for your help guys, this makes no logical sense whatsoever..

so lemme get this straight,
1 semester (half course)= 3 credit hours
1 full course= 6 hours
1 half course + lab= 4 credit hours

what about a full course with lab? 8 credit hours?

:confused:
