A student may enroll in a course of study not listed in the Lyon College Catalog to pursue independent research. For this, a student needs a full-time faculty member to supervise the independent study. The course number prefix will conform to the appropriate discipline. Variable credit is allowed up to a total of six semester credits. The student must file with the registrar an independent study form signed by the full-time faculty member serving as supervisor, Chair of the Division in which credit is to be awarded, and the provost, before enrolling in the course. The College is not under any obligation to offer a course through independent study.
