Individual Student Program

Individual Student Program (ISP) Overview

Hartwick College offers two ways to earn a baccalaureate degree: The departmental major and the Individual Student Program (ISP), a self-designed major. Students whose needs and interests are not met by standard Hartwick majors are encouraged to develop an Individual Student Program, a self-designed area of concentration.

Please note: Hartwick College focuses on offering fall, January, and spring term undergraduate courses in person, however circumstances may require us to offer a small number of courses in this department through distance education. In times of emergency, following regulatory guidelines, all classes may temporarily need to be delivered through distance education, including online. We also offer a slate of courses online in the summer to help our students make progress towards their degrees. With support from an academic advisor, students needing particular courses may have other online options as well. If you have questions about the way courses are delivered in your program, please contact your Department or Program Chair.
