Courses How do Reading Courses work?

    So how do these work? Do you go up to a professor and request his assistance for independent study, after which point this whole deal is made official and you're credited for it? Thanks in advance.

    The exact procedures probably vary from one school to another, so you should ask locally!

    Here, you have to get a professor to agree to supervise you, then fill out a proposal form, get it signed by the professor and the department chair, and submit it to the provost's office for approval. After it's approved, you can register for the course along with your other courses.
