***Please Note: Effective Fall 2016, students will be limited to a maximum of 12 credit hours of Undergraduate Research (UR) and/or Independent Study(IS) that may count toward their undergraduate degree as described in the resolution passed in May 2016 (CUSP Resolution 2015-16O). The resolution has a provision for a student to exceed this 12-hour maximum of UR/IS courses if the hours are required on their checksheet.

The Resolution also requires the instructor (faculty member supervising the student’s work) to identify a tangible output produced by the student at the end of the course that will be used to determine the student’s grade. This may be in the form of a poster, presentation, paper, or other suitable deliverable relevant to the student’s field of study and nature of the UR/IS.***
