How to apply and register for Art & Design's Special Problems course:
Students need to seek faculty approval prior to completing a Special Problems Agreement form. Once approval is received from a faculty member, the student and faculty member will both sign the completed Special Problems Agreement form. The instructor will then provide the student with a permission number to register for the course. The student will need to make two copies of the Agreement form (one for the student and one for the department office). The original Agreement stays with the professor.
