Independent study courses

If you wish, it is possible for you to make arrangements to participate in special independent study coursework. However, remember that it is your responsibility to find a faculty member who is willing to complete an independent study with you. Prior to arranging for an independent study, consult with your adviser(s) to determine if/how the course will contribute to meeting your degree requirements.

Here are some additional tips if you are considering an independent study:

  • Remember that you cannot register for independent study courses on-line as you can for your regular classes.
  • Print out the approriate form below and submit the signed form to the Registrar's Office by the add deadline, as specified in the Academic Calendar.
