Independent Studies

To register for independent study course, a student should get from the Registrar's Office the form provided for that purpose, have it completed by the instructor involved and appropriate department/division head, and return it to the Registrar's Office. The form must be submitted no later than the Census Day (last day of registration) for the term in which the independent study is to be completed.

For each semester credit hour awarded for independent study (x99 course), a student is expected to invest approximately 25.0 contact hours plus 30.0 hours of independent work. Additionally, the faculty certifies that an appropriate course syllabus has been developed for the course, reviewed by the Department/Division and the student, and is available upon request from the department.
