Guided Study

A regular course listed in the catalog may be offered on an individual basis to an enrolled Trinity student if a requirement in the student's academic program cannot be met in any other manner. Conditions for a guided study include the following:

  1. The regular course is not offered in the semester of the guided study, or the course cannot fit into the student’s schedule;
  2. The student has at least a 2.0 cumulative GPA and has completed at least 50 semester hours of coursework.

Prior to final registration, written permission to enroll in the guided study must be secured from the instructor, department chair, and the Dean of the College. All work for the guided study is due according to the schedule determined by the instructor and no later than the final exam week of the semester. A student may earn a maximum of 21 credits by any combination of guided or independent studies. A guided study may not be used to retake a course (i.e., to improve a grade).
