What is an academic credit hour?

The American university system is built around a system of credit hours. A credit hour is a basic unit of work: each credit hour represents approximately 40 hours of work, including readings, lectures, assignments and assessment. A standard class is typically equivalent to 3 credit hours.

For a 3-credit hour class taught over an 8-week term, you should factor in 120 hours of total work, which is approximately 15 hours per week. If you enroll in two classes per term (totalling 6 credit hours), which is a standard full-time load, you can expect 240 hours of work or 30 hours of study time per week.

What is the cost per term/semester?

Courses are charged on a per credit hour basis. We have negotiated a competitive price of UGX 333,250 per credit hour from Southeastern University. Accordingly, a 3-credit hour course will cost you UGX 999,750. If you enroll in two such courses per term, the cost per term is UGX 1,999,500. Each term is eight weeks long.

A 16-week semester from Southeastern University typically includes two terms of study. So, you could enroll in two courses per term and four courses in a semester. Accordingly, a full semester of study including four courses will cost you UGX 3,999,000.

We will typically offer two full semesters per year as well as an additional 8-week term during June and July. Therefore, a full year of study, assuming you want to take all available classes (10 classes or 30 credit hours), will cost you UGX 9,997,500.

Please note that these UGX rates are applicable for the Fall 2018 Semester (Sessions A & B) and may fluctuate in the future.

How is part-time study different from full-time study?

An undergraduate bachelor’s degree is equivalent to about 120 credit hours. Full-time study, taking 30 credit hours per year, will allow you to complete your studies in 4 years.

However, you have the option of taking fewer classes per term/semester. While this enables you to spread out the workload and cost, it will also extend the total time of study. Please bear this in mind when planning your course of study.
