2022-2023 Course Catalog

Independent Study

A student may register for only one independent project per semester. Independent study options are available in all academic programs. Credit values for independent study are one, two, three, or four credits. An application for an independent study must include a correctly labeled current syllabus. Additionally, the nature, frequency, mode and documentation of contact with the supervising faculty member should be explicitly defined, and the number of credit hours associated with the study should be justified.


Up to 18 credits of independent study may count toward the 120 credits needed to graduate.


Graduate independent studies may only be available and approved after a consultation with appropriate Program Director.
