At most 6 credit hours can be taken as independent study (CS 697).
The instructor should be an approved graduate faculty.
The student must submit a plan (about one page) of the independent study which is to be signed by the instructor and the Graduate Program Director before registration. This plan should also include a schedule of required meetings between the student and instructor. A copy of this form is kept in the student’s file.
No more than three Seminar/Topics and Independent Study courses (CS 697, CS 791, CS 796) will be counted towards the MS degree course requirements.
