You register for ASA 483 (our honors thesis number) by completing a
“Request for Independent Study” form. Your thesis director will help you fill
out this form. You must attach a copy of your thesis proposal to the form. The
form requires signatures from your thesis director, academic adviser,
department chair, and college dean.
It is very important that you or your thesis
director write “HONORS COLLEGE STUDENT” plainly in the top margin so that the
cost of your independent study is charged to the correct university budget
The dean’s office will send the
“Request for Independent Study” form to the Registrar/Scheduling Office. The
Registrar/Scheduling Office will add the course automatically to your
schedule—you do not need to use MyIUP to add it yourself.
Two cautions about this automatic scheduling:
You must fill out and submit an Independent
Study form and proposal twice—one for each semester. That is,
the second semester credits will not appear by magic on your schedule. You must
register for the second semester the same way you did for the first.
