To receive credit for an independent study experience, PitE students must register for Environ 300. Students must get a confirmation from a faculty advisor. This page outlines what students must do in order to register for Environ 300.
The faculty advisor must clearly communicate the minimum requirements and basis for grading in writing. Faculty advisor must have a teaching appointment at U-M. GSIs are ineligible to be faculty advisors. PitE may grant an exception to this policy. If so, a brief rationale for the exception, along with the signed faculty-student agreement, will be sent to the LSA Curriculum Office to be kept on file.
PitE will keep on file copies of the signed Independent Study Approval form and sufficient evidence of student work to demonstrate that the agreement was fulfilled for a period of 7 years.
