Although not available on a regular basis, on occasion a student may arrange to undertake tutorial study for academic credit with an instructor.  Such tutorial arrangements must be proposed by petition and receive approval from the Graduate Academic Standing Committee.  The Committee will take into account the nature of the proposed project, the student’s interest and need, and the availability and approval of the faculty member involved in reaching its decision.  Tutorials are not routinely permitted during the summer.  Not more than one tutorial for a given student may be approved in any one semester.  

PhD students may take no more than two tutorials during course work.

PhD students may complete no more than 12 credit hours in their degree program through tutorials and cross registration combined.
