Our Best Answer - What is an academic credit?
An academic credit or unit is a measure of the amount of instruction offered for a specific course. For each credit, you will have one hour of instruction each week and should spend two hours per week doing homework, research, projects, and studying for that course.
A four-credit course will involve four hours of instruction each week and you are expected to spend an additional eight hours per week on homework and studying.
The number of credits/units for specific courses is available in the Schedule of Classes or on your Curriculum Sheet for your major.
At Cal Poly Pomona, an undergraduate student is considered full-time if he/she is registered for 12 units/credits that quarter.
