Independent Study

The Independent Study Project (ISP) allows students to supplement the established curriculum by completing a faculty supervised project for credit in a specific area of interest. Its purpose is to meet individual student needs by providing an alternative to regularly-offered courses.

See the Independent Study Application and Instruction form for steps to completing the application and guidelines for the approval process.  Refer to the Academic Calendar for specific deadline dates.
