Approval Required Electives


Though most electives are self-service enrollment in Peoplesoft, the list of electives below will not be self-service as they require approval from the elective coordinator. For the electives below, you must contact the coordinator to see if there is space available. If the coordinator approves your request to add the elective, they will be giving you a permission number to allow you to enroll via POE. 

In addition to the list below, all 2 week electives follow this same approval process by accepting an email from the coordinator for approval with the elective dates sent to and these are manually added to your schedule at this time.
