Credit-bearing independent studies are available to matriculated students wishing to explore areas of a discipline not covered in the normal curriculum but related to the students’ program. An Independent Study is not available to non-matriculated students. Matriculated students must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 to be eligible for an Independent Study.
The purpose of an Independent Study is to expand a student’s learning experience beyond the normal program curriculum. Typically worth one to three credits, an Independent Study may not be done in lieu of courses currently existing in the College Catalog.
