STCC Honors Program - Independent Study

Rules of the Independent Study Road

Honors Independent Study gives students the opportunity to undertake research and study specific topics not included in traditional course offerings. Students pursuing independent study, work under the guidance of a faculty sponsor. Students are required to complete a course of study with the faculty sponsor and gain approval from the Honors Coordinator and the Honors Committee, prior to end of the first week of the semester. Like Honors Add-Ons, a contract signed by both student and faculty member must be submitted to the Honors Coordinator. Links to the contract in a variety of formats appear here.
