Students interested in competing an independent study for academic credit should begin the process by discussing the plan with their adviser and contacting an appropriate full-time faculty member of the Johns Hopkins University to supervise and evaluate the work. With Faculty guidance, the student develops the description, objectives, learning activities, and the method for evaluating work. Students must register for independent study to receive credit in that semester. A registration form must be completed and submitted with registration materials.
