SC1x - SC4x each run for 13 weeks. The first week, called week 0, is introductory and there are no assignments. There are 8 weeks of content, each including about 2 hours of video lessons, quick questions, practice problems, and graded assignments. Midterms take place in week 6 and finals in week 12. We expect learners to invest between 6 and 12 hours per week during a course.
SC0x is formatted to be almost always open. You have as many weeks as you may need to review the materials and practice problems. There are two or three 'runs' of SC0x per year. Each run culminates in a final exam which you must pass as a verified learner in order to earn the SC0x credential.
Once you have completed all five courses the course team will invite you to the next Comprehensive Final Exam (CFx). We expect it will take between 14 and 18 months to complete all five courses and the final exam.
