All students are eligible to register for self-paced courses in Creighton’s Independent Study Program. The Independent Study Program offers students the opportunity for access to undergraduate core courses developed by Creighton faculty members. Communication is the key to receiving the personalized instruction that is ordinarily given in the traditional college classroom. The Independent Study Program maintains the same high degree of instructional quality that is maintained in on-campus courses at Creighton.

The minimum course completion time is 12 weeks, and the maximum is six months from the date of enrollment. Tuition is $1266 per course, except for NUR 223 Nutrition (2 credits), which is $844. Textbook and supplementary course material costs are in addition to tuition. Independent Study Program information is available online at or from the College of Professional Studies Office, B-11, Eppley Building 402.280.1253 or 1.800.637.4279. Students may register for an Independent Study Program course any time during the year.
