About AHE Units

The critical component in validating high school credit is hours of instruction, not necessarily completing a course of study.

  • The standard measurement in a pre-college program is the unit of credit. The AHE unit of credit generally represents 50-60 minutes of instruction five times per week over the course of an academic year, which consists of 180 days.
  • Credits are validated by the semester, which is half the year or 90 days.
  • According to how much credit is required for a course, students not needing a full credit (150–190 hours) can also earn .5 credits (75–90 hours) or .25 credits (37–45 hours).

The following courses represent the general requirements for the fulfillment of a secondary education (grades 9–12). These units of credit are earned based on the fulfillment of the AHE unit of credit requirement.
