Directed study is an alternative method of learning required course material which is appropriate only when a student cannot take the course in the usual manner. Under the direction of a faculty member, the student must meet the same learning outcomes as required in a regularly scheduled course. A GPA of 3.0 or higher is required to pursue directed study. Directed Studies should not be used for core classes. Regulations and directed study applications can be obtained from the Office of the Registrar. Only two courses taken by directed study may be applied toward fulfilling graduation requirements and only one directed study may be taken in a term. There is an additional charge of $85 per credit hour.
The Application for Directed Study must be completed and signed by the faculty member, School Dean and the Vice President and Dean for Academic Affairs and submitted BY THE STUDENT before the end of the drop/add period. IT IS THE STUDENT'S RESPONSIBILITY TO ENSURE THAT ALL REQUIRED SIGNATURES ARE OBTAINED AND THAT THIS FORM IS IN THE REGISTRAR'S OFFICE BY THE DROP/ADD DEADLINE.
