Class to Study Time Policy
Please refer to page 41 of the Rio Hondo College Catalog for entire policy regarding study hours.
Rio Hondo College Work Hours/Class Guidelines (pg.41 College Catalog)
For each hour spent in a lecture class, a student should plan to spend about two hours a week in study and homework. Thus, a load of 15 units plus study time may require 45 hours a week– more than a full-time work week.
