Sylvia Newman, Instructor
"I like that I am providing access to students who may not be able to complete their education otherwise, and increased access to education is important to me."
Scott Rhead, 2019 WSU Graduate
"Because the independent study course could be completed over six months, I was able to ease the pressure from an already-full class load."
Heidi Costello, Instructor
"Life happens, and independent study is great for these students who just need a little flexibility."
