Independent study is available for lower division research or academic work in a specific discipline. Students must consult with an instructor in the department in which independent study will occur regarding the outcomes of the project. An instructor would have to agree to sponsor the student in his/her independent study project. Requests for independent study are then submitted to the dean of the academic area for approval. Students are charged the current per credit tuition and fees; credits earned are recorded on the transcript with the grade earned.
Application forms for independent study are available in the Mahendra Nath Career and Academic Planning Center. A maximum of five independent study credits may be applied toward degree requirements.
