High School Credit Equivalency

The policies for assigning high school credit for college courses vary by state. The Carnegie Unit is the most widely used method of assigning credits in U.S. secondary schools. A Carnegie Unit represents a total of 120 hours of coursework in one subject; fractional units are awarded for subjects with fewer hours.

At the college level, each semester credit hour represents approximately 45 hours of class lecture combined with outside classwork or studying. If your state defines a high school credit as a Carnegie Unit of 120 hours, a 2-credit college course would be equivalent to 1/2 unit of high school credit, and 3- or 4-credit college courses would be equivalent to 1 unit. High schools may need to adjust based on your state’s requirements for assigning high school credit.
