Registering for a Directed Study Course

Doctoral students may enroll for a maximum of 6-9 credits of directed study (depending on their program). Directed studies must be developed in conjunction with the advisor; the learning objectives must be clearly defined, the nature of the demonstration of outcomes described, and a specific schedule of meetings with the professor established so that students may obtain the guidance required. Directed studies may only be arranged with full-time faculty and may not be used to substitute for courses regularly provided in the curriculum.

You must complete Part I the Directed Study Form with your instructor and submit the completed form to your department's Program Assistant. You will also need to turn in an Add/Drop Form with your signature and your advisor's signature. Keep Section I (Department, Course #, Section #, and CRN #) blank. A CRN will be given to you once the Dean's Office approves your paperwork.
