Variable Unit Courses

Variable Unit Courses

Students who wish to enroll in variable unit courses, such as independent, research, group or dissertation studies, must first identify and contact a faculty person whose academic expertise is related to their proposed project. If the faculty person agrees to sponsor the student’s research or special study project, the student and the faculty sponsor then together fill out a Course Contract . The course contracts are agreements between faculty and students and serve as written verification of the faculty person’s consent to sponsor the student for academic unit credit.
