Spring 2022 Registration

The University is transitioned to Banner for registration in the Fall 2021 semester. Now, students will see Independent Studies course offerings along with all other University courses when searching for courses in Banner.

All Extended Studies course sections begin with the letter ‘E.’ Independent Studies courses are searchable using the ‘ES – Independent Studies’ attribute. 

Degree-Seeking Students

Students can search Independent Study courses using Self Service Banner, however all Independent Study course sections require a permit to register.

Please email the Independent Study advisor, Jessica Gama to request a permit to register.

Print-Based Students:

Print-Based Students should still utilize the paper Independent Study registration form to request registration. Please complete the form and send it to the Independent Study advisor along with payment. Paper registration forms may not be processed if they do not include payment.

Non-Degree Seeking Students:

Electronic Independent Study Registration Form

Please complete the Electronic Independent Study Registration Form (this is for Non-Degree Seeking Students ONLY) accurately and in its entirety. When completing the form, please consider the following:

  • If the student is incarcerated, please include the DOC number.
  • Include your CSUP 9-digit NetID number if you already have one.
  • The form will allow you to select courses from a list of Independent Study course offerings.
  • Each course is listed multiple times based on the length of the course, so please select the section that best suits your needs from either the 15-week or 1-year offerings (print-based students should select 1-year course sections to allow time for mailing). 

Payment for Fall Courses

Degree-Seeking students should access and pay their bills as they would for any other course. Payment methods are outlined on the Student Billing page.

Non-Degree Seeking students should pay for their courses using the payment link below. 

Print-based students need to send payment along with their paper registration form or make payment through the payment link prior to registration, otherwise, registration may not be processed.
