The Bar-Ilan Credit System
Bar-Ilan credits are expressed in terms of "annual class hours." The number of "annual hours" awarded for a particular course is normally equal to the number of hours per week devoted to that course during a full year of study (i.e., each "annual hour" is equivalent to 2 credits as usually defined by the U.S. universities working on a semester system). This does not apply to laboratory, seminar, or recitation hours or for certain science courses for which a special credit hour value has been determined.

Students are required to take courses in English as a foreign language based on their level in the screening exams. Students demonstrating a high level of proficiency in the English language based on predefined criteria may be exempt from these courses.
