Unit Equivalency

VA converts credit earned during nonstandard quarters or semesters to credit hour equivalents.VA makes the conversion, not school. When enrollment periods overlaps, credit hour equivalents for the period of the overlap are combined.

The credit hour equivalency tables show training time for nonstandard length quarters and semesters. To determine the number of weeks:

  1. Count the number of days in the enrollment period (first day through the last day).
  2. Divide by 7.
  3. Disregard a remaninder of 3 days or less and consider a remainder of 4 days or more a full week (Remember not to confuse remainder of days with the decimal place).

Use the chart below to find the Semester Hour Equivalency.

Hour Equivalency Key
