With the approval of the instructor, department chair, and dean of the school/college, graduate students who have been admitted to candidacy may register for independent study in their major field. Students registered for independent study must be scheduled for regular conference periods at least weekly. No more than three (3) semester hours of credit for independent study may be earned in any one semester, and no more than six (6) semester hours of credit for independent study may be applied toward a graduate degree.
An existing course listed in the Graduate Catalog may not be taught as an independent study. Anyone seeking to pursue independent study must be a candidate for a degree at Fayetteville State University.
