Under certain circumstances a matriculated student may need to take a course during a semester when the course is not offered. A Directed Study allows a matriculated student to pursue the published learning objectives/outcomes for a course independently under the guidance of a qualified faculty member. A matriculated student must have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.0 to be eligible for a Directed Study. The student must demonstrate compelling reasons why the course could not be taken in a subsequent semester or was not taken in the semester when it was originally offered in the curriculum. Barring exceptional circumstances, a Directed Study will not be granted for a course currently being offered by the College. Directed Study Forms may be obtained from the student's advisor.
