Special Course Form
This form is available in each department and is used to register a student in a course that is not published in the official schedule of classes during a particular term, i.e., does not have a Course Reference Number.
In particular, this form is used for all independent study (5500, 6500, 7500), thesis (5999, 6999), and dissertation (7999) courses or for courses that the student will be taking under the direction of a faculty member as a practicum, internship or individual study.
Students are expected to register for courses no later than the end of the add period in a given term. For Fall and Spring semesters this is the end of the fifth day of classes. In the summer terms, the add period lasts until the end of the first day of classes.
