Independent Study

Independent study and directed study courses are intended for students in their junior and senior years. Exceptions may be made for well-qualified sophomores.

Students may initiate the independent study enrollment process in YES by clicking on the Individual Study link on the student landing page. For more information, reference the Yes User Guide: Independent Study.

Students must be registered in the independent study before the end of the change period.
