Course tutorial study deals with the replacement of a catalog course in terms of units, content, syllabus, outline, and testing.
In general, the course tutorial cannot substitute for a course that is offered on a regular basis. However, it may occasionally be utilized to fulfill a course requirement when a class is cancelled because of low enrollment. The actual course number, instead of an independent study number, is recorded on the student’s permanent academic record.
Course tutorial units do not count toward the maximum 6 independent study units allowed in a graduate degree program, or the maximum 9 independent study units allowed in a professional degree program.
An Independent Study/Course Tutorial Application and proposal must be submitted to the registrar’s office in the Graduate and Professional Center by the Last Day to Add or Drop Classes or Submit Independent Study Proposals. An independent study fee of $125 per unit will be assessed in addition to the regular tuition charge.
