Policy Name: Independent Research and Study
Policy Number: 514.10
Effective Date: April 1, 2010 (review date)


Most departments offer advanced students the opportunity for independent study or research. Each department sets the qualifications and methods for its independent study courses. Those courses are normally available to advanced majors at varying levels of credit. The student and the instructor agree on the nature and requirements of the project at the time of registration. A student cannot receive credit for more than six credit hours of independent study except by permission of the person who approves the degree plan.
