Hours By Arrangement (HBA) are additional homework hours outside of class to practice and build additional skills. You must complete 32 HBA hours by the end of the semester for full credit toward your grade. Remember to fill out your HBA PDF log sheet.

Students are required to complete 32 hours of HBA during the class. This consists of 16 practice assignments. See the assignments below. The practice assignments are to be completed outside of regular class hours during open lab hours in 2-117A with an instructor present. You do not need to submit the completed assignment. You must complete 32 hours of HBA by the end of the semester for full credit toward your grade. Hours fewer than 32 will result in an equivalent percentage point grade reduction.
