How to I register for an independent study?
Ideally, you would register for credit through your professor’s department, and the process for doing so varies by department. Usually, it involves contacting someone in the department’s office and completing a form. Start by asking your professor if they would help you get started. If your professor’s department doesn’t offer independent study credit, check in with your advisor.
