Independent Study


Independent study is an atypical mode of instruction that must be undertaken only if the following guidelines are met and no other viable options are available.

  1. Independent study courses must be based on the same syllabi as the corresponding regular courses.
  2. Students taking independent study courses must complete exams and assignments equivalent to those required in regular classes.
  3. All independent study courses must be approved by the instructor, the student's advisor, the Campus Associate Dean, and the appropriate College-wide Associate Dean (Academic, Technical or Health Sciences).
  4. Instructors must meet with students in independent study courses at least once a week.

NOTE: Guidelines for Independent Study do not apply to be arranged (TBA) courses.
