Independent study, such as the Independent Study Program, involves extensive reading and writing assignments.
Success in an independent study program is largely determined by your self-discipline, motivation and amount of time devoted to study. You should carefully consider your commitment to work, home, family, social and community activities in deciding how much time you will have available for study.
Another key to your success is the individual guidance and instruction you will receive. Each of your lessons will be evaluated by your course instructor and returned with comments regarding your individual assignment. You may also submit comments and questions with your assignments. In essence, a dialogue is created that parallels classroom instruction.
Advising and support are provided by the Independent Study Program staff. Please express concerns or ask questions as needed.
