Submission Instructions:

Before submitting an Independent Study Application, please read thoroughly the Frequently Asked Questions. We also recommend giving your intended faculty sponsor the Faculty Info Sheet for more information about being a (G)ISP/AI sponsor.

All GISPs, ISPs, and AIs need to submit the Independent Study Application and a Faculty Sponsor statement, along with any appropriate supplements in the list below. Submission instructions are within the documents.

Application must be submitted to by the deadline.

Check out (G)ISP Sample App 1(G)ISP Sample App 2, and (G)ISP Sample App 3 for good examples of completed (G)ISP proposals. To see other previously approved GISPs, visit the Past GISPs Database.

Every student participant in a GISP is expected to contribute to the course syllabus. For this reason, no student may enroll in a GISP after its proposal has been approved.
