Credits & Credit Load

The academic year is divided into three quarters of approximately eleven weeks each. There is also a summer quarter of approximately seven weeks. Peninsula College uses the following schedule to determine credit load status for students:

  • Full Time: 12 or more credits
  • Three Quarter Time: 9-11 Credits
  • Half Time: 6-8 credits
  • Less than Half Time: 1-5 credits

Students who plan on completing their pathway within two years should enroll in 15 credits per quarter. Please consult with your program advisor to determine the best way to meet your specific academic and career goals.
