Independent Study

Independent Study

With the approval of the instructor, the department chair, the dean of the college, and the Graduate School, graduate students may register for independent study in their major field. Students registered for independent study must be scheduled for regular conference periods at least weekly. To register for an independent study, a "Special Course Form" must be completed with departmental signatures before obtaining the Dean's signature.

No more than six (6) semester hours of independent study may be applied toward a graduate degree, and no more than 25% of the student's degree program may be taken in a combination of selected topics and independent studies.
