Waivers and Petitions: Graduate Independent Study 899 Form
18. Independent Study courses (699 & 899) with 1, 2, 3 units are listed as having the same course numbers. Because they are supervision, does this mean the course number does not matter? Are they simply added manually by the instructor?These courses are called ‘consent’ courses in Campus Solutions. Students need permission numbers from faculty to add.
Prior to enrollment in the course, the student, with support of the faculty member, must develop a written plan of study detailing the focus of the independent study, the assignments required and the manner of assessment of the work completed in the form of a project, examination or performance.
A petition for an independent study form may be obtained from the major department office and must be reviewed by the Division of Graduate Studies. Independent study contracts must be filed in the department office and are subject to audit by the CSU.
