Spring 2021 Seminar, Directed Research and Simulation Course application process

  • 19 October 2020

DIRECTED RESEARCH APPLICATION PROCESS

Students interested in registering for Directed Research in Spring 2021 must complete a statement of interest indicating why they would like to pursue a particular project.  The statement must be written or typed on the Directed Research Application form.  The directed research application is also located on the Academic Services page of the TLS Intranet under the Course Documents heading, or may be picked up from the Academic Services Office.  No student may apply to more than one professor in the same semester for a directed research project.  Students should consult with their proposed supervising professor before completing and submitting the Directed Research Application form.   The Directed Research Application form must be turned in to the Academic Services Office by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, October 30th.  The faculty member will select the students who will be allowed to register for a directed research project.  Only students whose names appear on the list for directed research will be registered.  Those who are not selected are encouraged to either register for a relevant course or to reapply in the following semester. 

 

SEMINAR APPLICATION PROCESS

Students wishing to apply for a Spring 2021 seminar course should submit the seminar application form to Academic Services by 5:00 pm on Friday, October 30th.  The seminar application form is also located on the Academic Services page of the TLS Intranet under the Course Documents heading, or may be picked up from the Academic Services Office.  The selections for the seminar courses will be posted by November 9th.  Please note that students may apply for only one seminar which could meet the writing requirement, but may register for more seminar courses should there be openings available after the application process has been completed

In allocating courses, we will give priority among other considerations to those students who require additional experiential credits to graduate or for bar eligibility. Students who are not placed in their first choice of simulation course will be added to the waitlist for that course. A student who does not want to take a course for which the student is pre-registered or wait-listed should drop it through Gibson promptly and notify Academic Services. Any re
