Hours By Arrangement
Students are required to complete 2 hours of HBA per week. This consists of 16 practice assignments. See the separate Practice Assignments for details. 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 can download a PDF of the HBA log sheet below. Fill out the log sheet with your hours and submit the PDF at the end of the semester. 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.
