Credit Weight

the relative weight assigned to the course and is generally based on the value assigned under the system previously used at WLU: a full-credit (1.0) course (also referred to as one credit) corresponds to the former two-term course; and a half-credit (0.5) course corresponds to the former one-term course. In the intramural sessions a full-credit course is usually taught over two terms and a half-credit course over one term. However, courses may be taught over other periods of time than those listed.
