General Institutional Information
The unit by which Eastern measures its coursework is called a credit hour. The College assigns one credit hour to a class that meets the equivalent of one class hour per week during the semester. Courses offered during a term are assigned a credit value related to the number of class- hours involved in the course, typically from one to four credits. Some courses require time for laboratory work in addition to the time required for lecture. In general, laboratory sessions meet for two contact hours each week of the term for each credit hour awarded. Students should expect to spend at least two or more hours per week in out-of-class course work for each credit hour.

West Virginia Higher Education Explorer
As part of an effort to streamline and modernize the state’s higher education accountability system, the West Virginia Legislature passed a bill in 2019 that allowed for the creation of Explorer – a new interactive online data portal that is now available on the Higher Education Policy Commission’s website (wvhepc.edu). Explorer makes data on key enrollment, student success, and degree production metrics more easily accessed by the public. Additional dashboards provide local data on factors such as the college-going rate, progress toward reaching the state’s educational attainment goal, and the percentage of students who complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. Explorer also includes interactive reports from the state’s P-20 data system on the pathways students followed from their 10th grade year of high school through higher education, as well as the wages graduates earned after college. The P-20 data system is the result of an ongoing collaboration between the West Virginia Department of Education, HEPC, West Virgina Community and Technical College System (CTCS), and Workforce West Virginia. The annual report card may be viewed at http://www.wvhepc.edu/resources/data-and-publication-center/.
