CHEM 290 INDEPENDENT STUDY IN CHEMISTRY

This independent study course is designed to permit individual students to pursue topics or projects approved by supervising faculty.

Prerequisites:

1. Completion of at least one semester's work in a degree program at SUNY Delhi.

2. A cumulative grade point average of at least 2.00, unless there are extenuating circumstances.

3. At least 3 credit hours in one foundation course, specific to the discipline, with the permission of the Dean of Liberal Arts and Sciences.

4. No more than 6 semester hours of work in independent study may be taken during any one semester, and no more than a total of 15 semester hours in independent study may be applied toward an associate's degree. The total number of semester hours in independent study toward a bachelor's degree is dependent on the specific bachelor's program.

5. The student and his/her sponsor will prepare and submit to the Dean of Liberal Arts and Sciences an Independent Study contract proposal for approval.
