Independent Study

Opportunities for credit-bearing independent study are available to matriculated students who wish to explore areas of a discipline not covered in the normal curriculum but related to the student’s program.  Independent study courses are not available to non-matriculated students. Students must be matriculated and have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 to be eligible for an independent study. The intent of independent study is to expand a student’s learning experience beyond the normal program curriculum.  Typically undertaken for one to three credits, independent studies may not be done in lieu of any course existing in the college catalog. Financial aid may not cover the cost of the independent study if it does not meet graduation requirements.
