Independent Study, Directed Research, or a MAP may not substitute for a course regularly offered by Grinnell College, even though the course is not offered every year.
Directed Research 299 may be undertaken after completion of the first year; Independent Study (297 or 397) may be undertaken when a student has attained second-year standing. Directed Research 399 and a MAP 499 may be undertaken after completion of the second year.
Students having less than third-year standing who have satisfied the tutorial requirement or its equivalent may take one Plus-2 or an Independent Study/Directed Research course (297, 299, and 397) per semester. There is no semester limit for third- and fourth-year students.
Although students are not limited in the total number of Individual Study/Directed Research courses (Plus-2, 297, 299, 397, 399, and 499) they may take, they may apply only 12 of these credits in any one department toward satisfaction of graduation requirements.
An application for Independent Study, Directed Research, or a MAP must be completed with the required project statement and with all faculty signatures before submission to the Office of the Registrar. All applications are subject to the approval of the dean of the College.
The S/D/F grading option is not available for Plus-2, Independent Study, Directed Research, or MAPs.
