Independent Study

    An Independent Study Course (I.S.) is a course mutually developed and designed by a student and supervising instructor to explore a subject area that is not offered in a course already being taught in Parkway.

    I.S.'s can be petitioned for 0.5 (one semester) credit or 1.0 (two semesters) credit.

    A standard grading system will be used (i.e. A, B, C, D, F). No "H"'s will be given.

    NCAA Eligibility
    No independent study courses are approved by NCAA.
