Judgment of Compliance
Davidson College is in compliance with Core Requirement 2.7.1.
Rationale for Judgment of Compliance
All of the College's degree programs exceed the credit hours indicated in the requirement.
The College offers degrees at only the bachelor level including a Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science. Like many other liberal arts colleges, Davidson College uses a course-credit system rather than a semester-hour system. Each course is given only one transcript credit. A one-credit course at Davidson has equal the amount of contact and depth of study as four credit hours in a credit-hour system. In the Davidson College Catalog, under the section entitled “Academic Program and Policies: The Curriculum,” the credit policy is explained as follows:
Thus, 32 course credits at Davidson is equivalent to 128 semester hours.
