An independent study is only offered as a last resort to fulfill a general studies requirement. All other options must be exhausted before an IS request will be considered. Options include:

- Taking another approved course in that session
- Registering for the course again in another session
Students need to exhaust these options before requesting an independent study.
Note: Independent Studies cannot be used to maintain aid eligibility.
