Rollback: The Middle States Commission on Higher Education now requires that all syllabi include average minimum amount of out-of-class or independent learning expected per week. Consult template uploaded with syllabus. For more detail see provost.gwu.edu/files/downloads/Resources/Assignment-Credit-Hours-7-2016.pdf. Because you didn't have enough to do already.
