Under certain circumstances, a matriculated student may take a course in a semester when the course is not offered. The Directed Study allows matriculated students to fulfill course learning outcomes under the guidance of a qualified faculty member. A matriculated student must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 to be eligible for a Directed Study. The student must request the Directed Study within the first two weeks of the semester.
Students seeking a Directed Study must give compelling reasons why they cannot take the course in a subsequent semester or why they were not able to take it wen it was previously offered. Barring exceptional circumstances, a Directed Study is not granted for a course currently being offered.
