  • Application for Independent Study

    An Independent Study is a well-defined individual research project supervised by a faculty member and completed without formal class meetings.  These studies provide students with the opportunity to gain experience doing research, to work closely with a faculty mentor on a project within their discipline, and to gain academic credit for their work. Since such projects involve less formal teaching than regular courses, effective Independent Study experiences require an increase in student responsibility and initiative in both research and the learning process.  The Independent Study guidelines are as follows:

    • Only matriculated students at York College will qualify for an Independent Study.
    • Students must have successfully completed a minimum of 60 or more credits at the time of application.
    • Students must have a minimum of a 2.5 cumulative grade point average at time of application.
    • The application must be approved by the academic Department Chair by the last day of DROP/ADD during the semester of study.  No extensions will be granted.
    • All tuition and fees must be paid accordingly to published deadlines by the Business Office.

    The Application for Independent Study form can be downloaded by clicking on the following link - Application for Independent Study.  It can also be obtained from the Registrar’s Office.  The form should be initially completed by the student. The application must include a comprehensive summary describing the nature, objectives, and evaluation format of the study. The approved completed forms must be submitted to the Registrar’s Office to be entered on the student’s schedule. The Independent Study must be completed during the fall semester, spring semester or Special Session during the summer.

    The Summer 2021 Individualized Studies Registration Form must be signed by all students taking, and faculty teaching, courses of the following types during the summer sessions at York College:

    • Independent Study
    • Tutorial
  • Tutorial Application

    Please select Tutorial Application for the form.

  • CAPP Degree Evaluation

    The CAPP (Curriculum, Advising, and Program Planning) system is used to track a student's course work toward their degree requirements. Matriculated Students are able to run CAPP degree evaluations using their myYCP log in.

    CAPP Degree Evaluation is a tool that both students and academic advisors use to review the academic progress of a student in their major or any other major that is offered by York College. The CAPP shows students how the courses they have registered for and completed will apply to the curriculum requirements for their major and then displays what other courses are needed to complete their degree. This system was installed in the Fall 2003 semester and is active for all matriculated students.

    *A student's CAPP is divided into the various areas of the major such as the core curriculum courses, the major requirements, free electives, and all other unique major requirements. These requirements can also be viewed in the College catalog.

    Can students run their own CAPP Degree Evaluations?

    Yes, the CAPP can be accessed through myYCP and the YCPWeb.

    If students are considering another major, is there a way to run a CAPP degree evaluation on the new major that would show how their existing courses would apply to the new curriculum?

    Yes, the CAPP Degree Evaluation includes a function that allows matriculated students to create a What-If Analysis if they are currently an Undeclared major and considering a particular curriculum or if they are considering changing from one major to another.

    How is CAPP used by students, advisors, and Academic Departments?

    Students should run a CAPP Degree Evaluation each semester before they register for classes offered in the next semester. Keeping a copy of the CAPP Degree Evaluation with you is helpful when meeting with your Academic Advisor. The CAPP degree evaluation will indicate completed coursework as well as courses that are still outstanding in the student's curriculum.

    The CAPP Degree Evaluation is also used by the Academic Departments and the Records Office in certifying students to graduate from York College.

    If the CAPP Degree Evaluation seems incorrect, is there a way to correct it?

    Yes. Sometimes due to transfer work, course substitutions, or other special circumstances, CAPP will not be correct. An academic advisor can substitute, target or waive courses for a student on their CAPP Degree Evaluation. In order to make adjustments to an existing CAPP evaluation, a CAPP Substitution/Target/Waiver Qualtrics Form must be completed and submitted to the Registrar's Office for processing. The academic advisor and the department chair must also approve of the change before it is processed.
