Independent Study

Independent study is a learning experience available to you if you wish to extend your education beyond the standard course structure of classroom activity as described in the *College Catalog and Student Handbook. It is an opportunity for students to work independently under the guidance of a faculty sponsor and is not intended as a substitute for an existing course. When the student working with a faculty sponsor agrees to the Independent Study, the faculty sponsor will initiate the Independent Study Application through the Curriculum Proposals database, by choosing Independent Study under the Create Proposals drop down menu.

Course registration and student notification for an approved Independent Study course is handled by Registration and Records after review and approval as outlined in the Faculty Senate Resolutions Independent Study 2.7
