Independent Study (IS) is intended for an elective course which the seminary does not regularly offer.  The student must obtain an Independent Study Form from the Registrar's Office (see Registrar Forms) and submit it to the instructor for completion and submission to the Academic Dean for approval.  If approval is received the student will be registered for the IS by the Registrar's Office.

An independent study is restricted to graduate students only, unless otherwise approved by the dean of studies. 

A student may not exceed six credits of independent studies that apply towards his/her degree program; an exception to this rule must be approved by the dean of studies. 

For more information on the procedures and policies for independent study, please contact the Office of the Registrar.
