2020-2022 Catalog and Student Handbook

Independent Study

The program of independent study must be approved, in writing, by the instructor overseeing the project. A detailed outline of the study project, including material to be covered, written work to be submitted, etc., must be developed. The plan must be submitted to the Vice-President for Academics.  In general, students may not take required courses by independent study. In cases of special circumstances, a student may request to take independent study in place of a normally offered course. Students should be aware that Mitchell Tech tries to avoid such arrangements so that as many students as possible benefit from classroom and lab instruction.
