Independent Arrangement Policy Academic departments may offer a course via independent arrangement. To consider approval for an independent arrangement, the course must be required within the student’s degree program; the student must have no more than 60 semester hours remaining in their degree program; and, the student is unable to take the course through no fault of the student, e.g. the course is not scheduled at a time the student can take it, and there are no course substitutions available to the student. Students with time conflicts between courses will complete a Time Conflict contract.
An independent arrangement must be agreeable to the faculty member offering the course, the student, department chair, associate dean, and provost when applicable. Completed forms will be returned to the Office of the Registrar.
