The School of Art provides forms to assist students with enrolling in courses; these forms typically don't come up until advance registration for the next semester. Use of any of these forms, however, does not guarantee enrollment in the desired courses. Enrollment is dependent on the signed approval of the requisite SOA faculty and/or staff.
In accordance with the Texas Tech University Undergraduate Catalog, the Texas Administrative Code, and the NASAD Handbook, the credit and time expectations for School of Art courses are as follows.
For studio- or project-based courses, a standard of 30 in-class contact hours per
credit hour per term is employed. Further, non-contact hour time expectations for
out-of-class student activity typically range from 15 to 30 hours per credit hour
For traditionally delivered 3 credit-hour lecture- or seminar-based courses during a regular semester, students should expect to be in class for 3 hours per week, and work outside of class a minimum of 6 hours per week. For 3 credit-hour studio- or project-based courses, students should expect to be in class for 6 hours per week, and work outside of class to consist of between 3 and 6 hours per week.
