The University transitioned to Banner for registration in the Fall 2021 semester. Now, students can see Independent Study 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 Study 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, Melody Montoya 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:

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 16-week or 1-year offerings (print-based students should select 1-year course sections to allow time for mailing).
