Students may propose a special project for earning one additional semester hour credit in one course in which they are already enrolled in a given fall or spring semester. Summer courses are not eligible for the Course Intensification option. The course must be listed in the undergraduate schedule of classes for three or more credits. The student is responsible for completing a Course Intensification form (available in the Registrar's Office or click here) and obtaining written permission from the instructor.
Approved proposals must be accompanied by a drop/add form and filed in the Registrar's office by the end of the fourth week of the semester.
Students who request the Course Intensification option may not alter this request once it has been approved – i.e. students may not drop the single credit.
The Course Intensification option requires additional student work, and under no circumstances should it be considered as a substitute for regular course work.
Students will receive the same grade for the entire course, including the additional work completed as part of the Course Intensification.
Students may take no more than one course per semester with the Intensification option.
Some academic programs may require majors to take certain courses using the Intensification option.
Consult departmental program descriptions for more details.
