Independent Study

Independent study provides an option when a student’s special needs preclude regular enrollment and attendance in courses outlined in the catalog, or when it becomes necessary to meet the particular curricular needs of one or more students. A petition must be approved both by the instructor who will supervise the contract study and by an appropriate administrator. The student, an instructor, and the appropriate administrator prepare a learning contract that specifies the learning content, as well as the methodology of study and means and criteria for evaluation.
