Optional Enrichment Electives (OEE)

Optional Enrichment Electives are elective courses offered in addition to the regular, required and elective/selective curriculum, which the student elects to take. Contact information is listed with each course description.

Optional, unlike regular electives, in that the students may choose not to take any of them. Participation in these courses is mentioned in the MSPE and appears on the transcript by name of course, with two hash marks (##) in the grades column and the following notation on the transcript: ## Optional Enrichment Course. The student has elected this course in addition to the regular curriculum requirements. New OEE's require approval by the Longitudinal Committee in order to be so designated and appear on the transcript. Failure to complete course requirements results simply in the course not being listed on the student's transcript. It is not possible to fail such a course. 

Faculty and/or student coordinator for a newly proposed Optional Enrichment Elective (OEE) must present to the Longitudinal Committee and be approved as an OEE before the start of the course.  See attached form for Approval and Proposal Process.

Please follow the proposal approval process below to propose a new OEE:

For Fall start (September/October) you must have new OEE proposals in to the Project Coordinator by June 1st.
For Spring start (January/February) you must have new OEE proposals in to the Project Coordinator by October 1st.

Please read the proposal approval process guidelines carefully and have a well completed proposal.  We will only take four new OEE proposals each timeframe, on a first come first serve basis.

Submit your proposal to the project coordinator, then your proposal will be preliminarily reviewed by a Longitudinal Committee member, the Project Coordinator will be in-touch with you before you present to the whole committee if there are changes needed.  Then you will present your proposal to the whole Longitudinal Committee for approval.
