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.
- Independent study courses must be based on the same syllabi as the corresponding regular courses.
- Students taking independent study courses must complete exams and assignments equivalent to those required in regular classes.
- 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).
- 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.
