Individualized Curriculum Program

The Individualized Curriculum Program (ICP)  is for mature and motivated  adults, 18 years and older, who wish to depart from traditional patterns of formal education by planning their own academic programs. Students develop, with the assistance of a program advisor and the dean, curricula that are consistent with their individual lives and career goals.  The essential principle underlying the program is the placing of considerably more responsibility for choice of course selection and sequence and for self-determination upon the students. 

Students must present to the dean a written statement explaining their curriculum proposal. The proposal should discuss their reasons for a nontraditional degree program and descriptions of  the requested courses, including any plans for a concentration or focus area.  In consultation with the student and advisor, the proposal will be submitted to the dean for approval.   A copy of the proposal will be placed in the student's file in the Office of the Registrar.
