In the case of a senior level student who needs two required courses that have a schedule conflict, a senior may enroll in a directed study course. Such situations rarely occur if the student has followed the prescribed schedule of courses through the previous semesters. Failure to pass a lower level course or neglect in taking lower level courses at appropriate opportunities does not constitute legitimate grounds for requesting a directed study of a required course. Directed study may not be used to retake a course in which an "F" was previously earned. No course offered in a semester may be taken on a "no attendance" basis.
Due to the additional work and individualized attention that a directed study demands from the supervising faculty member, students are charged a directed study fee of $150.00 per credit hour in addition to regular tuition charges. A "Proposal for Directed Study" form may be obtained from the Registrar’s Office or online at http://www.ohiochristian.edu/registrar/registrar-forms.
