Under certain circumstances a matriculated student may take a course in a semester when the course is not offered either during the day or evening. A directed study allows a matriculated student to pursue the published learning objectives/outcomes for a course independently under the guidance of a qualified faculty member. Students must be matriculated and have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 to be eligible for a Directed Study.
The student must demonstrate compelling reasons why the course could not be taken in a subsequent semester or was not taken in the semester when it was originally offered in the curriculum. Barring exceptional circumstances, a directed study will not be granted for a course currently being offered in the day or evening divisions.
