Credit Hour Policy


This policy generally defines credit hours as well as specific credit hour requirements for degree programs. Baylor College of Medicine (BCM) is a private, health-sciences university composed of four schools offering graduate level programs in the health sciences. Because each school has unique programs featuring differing methods of instruction, this policy is intended to offer guidance on how academic credit is awarded. In addition, the policy provides overall guidance on the number of credits required for the Doctor of Medicine degree.
