Directed study (regular courses taken by special arrangement in various formats) involves a one-on-one relationship between the student and the instructor (i.e., frequent conferences regarding the study are needed in order to complete a regularly offered course). Appropriate request forms for directed study are available in the Office of the Registrar.
Independent study involves scholastic or research endeavors apart from regular courses offered at Lynn University. Students should pursue independent study with direction from their supervising professor with the approval of the appropriate college dean.
Signatures denoting approval by the instructor, appropriate college dean must be obtained before a student can register for either course of study.
