To allow flexibility in students’ schedules, the university offers courses by directed study. With the appropriate approvals, a student may register for directed study for courses listed in the catalog. This study will be pursued under the guidance of the instructor. The usual syllabus of the course will be followed and the standards will be the same as when the course is being offered as a class. Such course constitutes a regular part of the academic load. The regulations regarding registration, tuition and fees apply.
