Eligibility is determined by the Main Library staff. Scholar studies may be assigned for one semester or an academic year. Scholar studies reservations approved for fall semester are not guaranteed to be renewed for Winter Term nor the spring semester.

Demand exceeds supply

  • Not every student who applies will get a scholar study
  • Students on the waiting list will be considered in the order in which the applications were received
  • Assignments are made at the beginning of each semester and winter term on a first-come, first-served basis.

Application Process

1. Download the Scholar Study application or pick one up at the Main Library Circulation Desk.

2. Indicate your preference for fall or spring semester reservation. If you are requesting a scholar study for Winter Term only, indicate this on the form under "Needed for Winter Term".
