Happy Wednesday, All,

I have a two questions about the following TAC rule <http://texreg.sos.state.tx.us/public/readtac$ext.TacPage?sl=R&app=2&p_dir=&p_rloc=102433&p_tloc=&p_ploc=&pg=1&p_tac=102433&ti=19&pt=1&ch=4&rl=6&dt=&z_chk=1945731&z_contains=contact%20hour> and wonder if you can offer your interpretation and practices:

(a) Traditionally-delivered three-semester-credit-hour courses should contain 15 weeks of instruction (45 contact hours) plus a week for final examinations so that such a course contains 45 to 48 contact hours depending on whether there is a final exam.

Questions:

  *   Based on your interpretation, can finals week count toward the 45 contact hour rule (or do we need 45 hours of instruction apart from finals week)?
  *   Do you subtract holiday hours (like Labor Day) when you are counting contact hours; or do you simply look for 15 weeks overall?

Thank you!
