In unusual circumstances, a student may be advised and permitted to take a course in the regular curriculum on a directed-study basis. Reasons for giving this permission are commonly related to the student’s status and at the discretion of the chair of the department from which the course is taught:
- As a candidate for graduation whose program requires the course or
- As a transfer into the major for whom the course is unavailable because of the course scheduling rotation.
- When a course, which is offered only occasionally and is not necessary for the major, is sought by a student as an elective.
The student must obtain the approvals as indicated on the directed study form available in the registrar’s office. No directed studies are permitted in any nursing clinical courses or student teaching assignment.
