A limited number of credit hours can be achieved by directed study in which students engage in individual research and further study in a particular subject area. Regular courses are not to be taken by directed study except in cases regarding unavoidable schedule conflicts with graduation requirements. When regular courses are taught by directed study, they must have essentially the same requirements as those taught in the classroom including exams. A student is limited to 12 semester hours of credit by directed study in any one program.
Students on academic probation are not permitted to take courses by directed study.
