Independent Study

Students may register for credit in independent study courses designed to free students from the usual course requirements and to offer an opportunity to independently and individually choose an area for study, to develop an individual approach, and to effect an educationally meaningful outcome.

No more than six credits per year or three credits in a semester are granted under independent study. A maximum of fifteen credits may be earned under this method. Procedures for enrolling in an independent study course are available in the Office of the Dean of Academic Affairs and in division offices. Because of the requirements accompanying this course, students are cautioned to begin the procedure well in advance of registration.
