Directed Study

Directed Study is a unique learning opportunity offered to a student in special circumstances. Directed Study is for a student interested in digging deeper into a topic not covered in the existing curriculum. Directed Study, therefore, should not be used to offer existing courses out-of-rotation; courses listed in the University Catalog as regularly offered courses should not be taken under the designation of Directed Study. Only junior and senior students may enroll in a Directed Study course. Students may complete a maximum of two courses of directed study work in any single semester. A maximum of fifteen credit hours of Directed Study may be applied toward a degree. A student must have completed fifteen credit hours at the University and have a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher before taking a Directed Study course.

Registering for a directed study course requires the Directed Study Application Form. Approval of the application requires the signatures of the student, the supervising faculty (instructor), the advisor, the applicable department chair or associate dean, and the dean of the school through which credit is to be granted. Exceptions to this policy will be considered in extenuating circumstances and in collaboration with the department chair or associate dean and the appropriate dean.
