Stephen F. Austin State University requires that the number of contact hours for each course (except individual instruction) offered for degree credit shall conform to the rules of the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board.
Permission to offer a course in a shortened format must be given by the appropriate academic dean and the provost and vice president for academic affairs. This permission is contingent upon a determination that the instruction and content of the material are appropriate to a shortened duration and that the quality of learning is at least equal to a course offered in a regular format. Students enrolled in a shortened course must meet the university’s regular admission requirements.
