MESAS evaluates all requests for directed readings and approves those that it considers of substantial academic/intellectual merit.
Students who wish to pursue a directed reading at either the undergraduate (497R) or graduate (797R) level must follow a three-step application process:
- Consult with the professor with whom you plan to work and complete the Student Directed Reading Request form.
- Have the professor with whom you plan to work complete the Faculty Support for Student Directed Reading Request form.
- Submit both forms together to the MESAS Office, S-312 Callaway Center.
Applications should be submitted no later than the Monday of the final week of the Add/Drop/Swap period. MESAS will notify students of the Committee's decision before the end of Add/Drop/Swap. MESAS will automatically enroll students whose applications are approved.
For questions, please contact the MESAS Office.
