 Independent Study
  • Your weekly schedule will include 13 lecture hours, 1 tutorial hour, and an average of 3 lab hours, for a period of 12 weeks.  This is the equivalent of 18 quarter-credits at Rose-Hulman.
  • You may choose to take additional, or different, classes if you can arrange a suitable schedule.  Bear in mind that it may be impossible to take some year-two classes (200-level) and some year-three (300-level) classes in the same semester.
  • Final Transfer of credit depends on departmental approval
  • Be sure to talk to your advisor and the director of study abroad about how classes abroad can fit into your overall plan
