The following is USF’s official policy on time management:
Time Management and Planning:
Students are expected to spend 2 hours outside of class in study and preparation of assignments for each hour in class. In a 4 unit class, assignments have been created with the expectation that students will engage in approximately 8 hours of out-of-class work per week; in a 2 unit class, students should expect to spend approximately 4 hours per week outside of class in study and preparation. Intensive classes may count the 2 hours of lab time as part of the out-of-class work.
