Without obtaining written permission from each of the above and without following the established registration procedure, no student may begin any directed/independent study for any required course. Written permission from the Advisor and the appropriate Chair must be submitted to the Associate Dean. The course timeframe, course syllabus, and course instructor must also be approved by the appropriate Chair and such information submitted to the Associate Dean before final approval can be granted.
