meets for three, 50-minute sessions for 18

weeks. The academic year at Grand Forks

50-minute period of class per week for

the semester. Laboratory, studio, or shop

sessions may be required in addition to the

classroom work.

is 16 credit hours per semester. A minimum

of 12 hours is required to be considered a
