Independent Study Contract
The purpose of independent study is to provide for intensive study in an area of special interest with appropriate faculty. An Independent Study should not be used to replace a regularly scheduled class or to give credit to an undergraduate teaching assistant, unless approved by the Divisional Associate Dean. Normally, Independent Studies should only be used when no equivalent course exists at MICA. Students who want to engage in independent study of a special topic should find/contact a supervising faculty, complete the Independent Study Contract, and submit the contract and any other supporting documents to the Office of Enrollment Services prior to the Add Deadline.
Prior Approval for Transfer Credit
Students may complete some requirements or electives at institutions other than MICA; however, approval to transfer credits back to MICA to satisfy degree requirements must be obtained prior to the student attempting enrollment at another institution. For example, a student may want to take a biology course at an institution in their home-town while on summer break to satisfy MICA's science requirement. Without completing the Prior Approval for Transfer Credit, the course may not be allowed to transfer; thus, causing the student to repeat efforts. Completed forms should be submitted to the student's assigned Academic Advisor or the Office of Enrollment Services.
Undergraduate Teaching Assistant Contract
The purpose of an Undergraduate Teaching Assistant opportunity is to provide faculty with supplemental instructional support and allow students to gain introductory insight into and experience with preparing class content for a college level course.
