Do I Have Enough Time to Take College Classes?
For example, how many credits should you take during a semester, given the number of hours you work? We recommend the following for a 16-week semester term:
|Work 40+ hours/week||1 Course||at most 4 credit hours|
|Work 30 - 40 hours/week||1 - 2 Courses||at most 7 credit hours|
|Work 20 - 30 hours/week||1 - 3 Courses||at most 10 credit hours|
|Work under 20 hours/week||up to Full-Time||at most 15 credit hours|
While the table above is a guide, work responsibilities are not the only factors to consider. To assist you in making your decision, take the following questionnaire.
We offer those of you who are potential online students, two tests to assist you in determining whether you are a person who will be successful taking an online class. This test dealt with who you are as a person. The other one: Do I have the technical skills and knowledge to learn online? deals with the technical skills and knowledge needed for the online student. If you are a potential online student and have not taken the other quiz, we recommend that you link there next. We recommend that after you have taken each test you print the results and take them to your Palm Beach State academic advisor. Visit our academic advising web site for more information.
