This document will provide tips for reviewing independent study and outline how to update an independent study section.

Review tips for independent study sections

  • Instructors will term roll with their sections.
  • Each Independent Study instructor is assigned to a specific Class Section  with a separate Class Number.
  • If course Component type is IND and the Catalog Nbr is <+699, Add Consent must be set at Department or Instructor Consent Required (and a requisite requiring consent is attached to your course).
  • General course information for Independent Studies courses will appear in the PDF Schedule of Classes; however, individual independent sections will not display. Individual class numbers are available in the Course Search & Enroll app.
