Enrollment Process for Independent Study and Tutorial
There is a "generic" enrollment process for independent studies and tutorials. There is no change in the course requirements as outlined in the current catalog. These courses are not listed within the various departments in the Course Schedule. At the beginning of the Course Schedule, you will see two sections of the course AAA100. Each section will have the title identifying the type of enrollment: AAA100-01 for an independent study; AAA100-02 for a tutorial.
Please enroll in these "generic" courses as follows:
1. Obtain and complete the necessary petition forms for independent study or tutorial in the Registrar's Office. The Registrar's Office will submit your petition to the Academic Support Committee (ASC) for approval, and you will be notified of the ASC decision.
2. During registration week, it is important to enroll in either of these courses you plan to take during the next semester. If your independent study or tutorial petitions are not completed during the registration session, you have until the "Last Day to Enroll in a Course" during the regular semester to submit the appropriate documentation. If the documentation is not submitted by this deadline, your enrollment in the course will be canceled.
3. Upon receipt of your ASC approved course enrollment information, the Registrar's Office will drop you from the "generic" AAA100 course enrollment, build the appropriate departmental course as listed in the catalog, and automatically enroll you. Each student will have his/her unique course enrollment. Some examples are as follows:
EN480-01, IS: Poetry of Robert Frost (an independent study for student A) EN480-02, IS: Tolstoy's War & Peace (an independent study for student B) MAT320-01, TUT: Modern Algebra (a tutorial for student C). This enrollment process is designed to provide various benefits such as improved transcript information for students by specifically listing course work in the title, enrollment accuracy, timely grade rosters to the appropriate instructors, and accurate credit hours for variable-credit courses.
If there are any questions, please contact the Registrar's Office.
