## Average number of semester hours

**How many semester hours are there on average?**

**It depends**

It is widely known the fact that a semester system divides the academic year into two terms, which are usually 14â€“20 weeks each. Needless to say, most of the cases the academic year begins in late summer or early autumn and ends during the following spring or summer. The exact number of hours per semester cannot be provided. It depends from one university to another. Statistics show that there are on average 15 credit hours per semester.
