Is there a time limit to complete the assignments in the Java College? If so what is it? I want to do it but I think I will only have about 3 hours a week to give to it, is that a enough?

To the best of my knowledge, there is no time limit. If you don't send in a new submission/attempt after 30 days, you get moved to the "inactive" list.

then, to get off that list, you have to... wait for it... send in a new submission. heck, i think you can even just send an email saying "i'm behind, but i'll get to it soon".

There are only two hard things in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors

One of the nicest things about the Cattle Drive course is that there is no time limit. You move at your own pace -- fast or slow.

The Assignment Log is maintained by the forum moderator(s). I think it helps students stay focused. Sending an email may not be sufficient to keep you off the inactive list, but posting in the forum is.

The other good thing is that "once a student, always a student". We've had students return after a couple of years away without a problem.

Have you already read the CattleDrive home page and About the CattleDrive?
