How do I register for an independent study or independent research?
You must complete an Independent Study/Research registration form. The form is available in the reception area of the registrars office, University Hall, garden level. The form must be completed in full and with all required signatures in order to ensure that you are registered properly. Required information includes the three or four letter course subject code (HED, PSYC, INTS, CFSP, etc.) and the correct course number (typically, Independent study: Undergraduate - 3991, Masters level - 4991, Doctoral level 5991 and independent research: 3XXX, 4995, 5995). If you are an undergraduate, you will need to obtain (in most cases) three signatures: one from the Registrars Office, one from your supervising instructor, and one from the chairperson or director of the academic program in which you are taking the independent study/research. If you are a graduate student, you will need to obtain two signatures: one from your supervising instructor, and one from your advisor. Oftentimes these are the same person; if so, he or she should sign the form twice. Make sure you have all signatures and that you sign and date the form before you submit it to the registrars office.
