To provide instruction and guidance for students who require an independent study to complete their coursework when a regular section of the class is not available or appropriate to their needs.
Due to the unstructured nature of independent study and low number of students engaged in similar study at any given time, qualified full-time faculty who meet the VCCS-29 credentialing requirements will supervise the student's endeavors without remuneration or additional workload credit. If there is no qualified full-time faculty member in a discipline which requires an independent study, a part-time faculty member may be asked to meet this need.
