Individualized Degree Program

An Individualized Degree Program is available for students whose plans and needs appear to differ from all established degree programs. The student must be able to justify to the Office of the Provost that the need for such a program exists. Application forms are available in the Office of the Provost. The dean of the college where the major is housed appoints a faculty committee who submits it to the Academic Policy Committee for approval. After a program is approved, the student must complete at least fifteen (15) hours for the Associate Degree and thirty (30) hours for the Bachelor Degree, without exemption. Credit hours completed during the semester the application is approved will count toward the completion of the subsequent (15 or 30 credit hours) coursework. Upon completion of the approved program, the student is eligible for graduation. The designation of “Individualized Degree” will be noted on the student’s transcript. The title of this degree may not duplicate an existing major.
