Independent Study Policy
Academic departments may offer a student the option to learn via independent study. An independent study covers a topic of interest to the student and may involve research, and/or extensive work outside of a classroom. Academic departments that offer independent study options are identified as Independent Topics or Study. This option is not available for a current course that is not already identified as Independent Study/Topics. Students with time conflicts between courses will complete a Time Conflict contract.
An independent study must be agreeable to the faculty member, the student and the department chair, associate dean, and provost when applicable. Completed forms will be returned to the Office of the Registrar.
