The independent study option is only available to graduating students if the course being requested is not on the schedule in the current academic semester in which the student has made an application for graduation. In order to be considered as a candidate for independent study the student must have a minimum of a 2.5 cumulative grade point average and must not have failed the course for which the independent study is being requested. Students are not allowed to take more than two (2) courses and/or six credits as independent study.
Students must make the request for independent study using the independent study form during the advisement period. Independent Study will be approved by the Dean of Academic Affairs but only on the recommendation of the lecturer responsible for the course.
