Academic Calendar

The Florida Memorial University Academic Calendar is the official timetable that governs academic instruction.

FMU defines one academic credit hour as a minimum of 50 minutes of direct faculty instruction or equivalent per week for a 15-week semester. This credit hour policy applies to all courses at all levels (undergraduate, graduate, professional) that award academic credit regardless of the mode of delivery.

Laboratory, internship, studio music, practicum and certain other types of courses may be assigned credit hours that are different from the contact time in accordance with commonly accepted practice in higher education.

Instructional meeting times for three-credit courses are as follows:

  1. Three days a week (i.e., Monday-Wednesday-Friday) for 50 minutes for a minimum of 45 contact days.
  2. Two days a week (i.e., Tuesday-Thursday) for 75 minutes for a minimum of 30 contact days.

One day (e.g., Monday or Saturday) for 150 minutes for a minimum of 15 contact days.
