  • Prerequisite: previous enrollment in course to be taught or equivalent. Arts students may not count this course toward graduation but may, upon petition (one time only) to their class dean, carry fewer than 12 other credits and remain in good standing. This would affect Dean's List eligibility but not eligibility for graduating with distinction. Students from all Colleges must submit a CALS Special Studies Form (Available online: http://cals.cornell.edu/academics/registrar/policies/#independent-study). Do not sign into section 601.
