Directed Study

A student may enroll in a course listed in the Lyon College Catalog as a directed study under the direction of a full-time faculty member in the discipline under which the course is listed. The normal course title and number will be listed on the student’s transcript preceded by the letters “D.S.” or “Directed Study.” The student must make arrangements for the directed study with the appropriate faculty member and division chair and submit the signed Directed Study Form to the registrar for approval by the provost. The College and the faculty are not obligated to offer any course through directed study, and doing so will depend on many factors including faculty willingness and availability as well as whether the course could be taken at a regularly scheduled time in the future and whether it is a requirement for graduation.
