  1. A proposal for directed independent study is developed with the student after initial consultation with the faculty. This document can be found online on the College of Nursing website under the “Current Students” tab in the Graduation Student Information page.
  2. The proposal for directed independent study form is completed and is jointly approved/signed.
  3. The proposal must be submitted to the Student Services Office and must be approved prior to registration for the DIS.
