Although not available on a regular basis, 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 teaching load of the faculty member involved in reaching its decision. Not more than one tutorial for a given student may be approved in any one semester. Tutorials are not routinely permitted during the summer. Normally, only two tutorials are allowed in the Ph.D., D.Litt. and D.M.H. programs. Tutorials may be counted as seminars. Students in the M.Litt. or D.Litt. are not eligible for tutorials until after their third semester.
