Freshman (1st Year) Mandatory Advising Initiative
Part Two - University (non-major) Electives
University electives - can I take elective classes?
You may select electives from time to time.
Electives are classes you take to earn units towards graduation which do not meet any specific requirements.
Here are a few examples of elective courses:
- A physical education-type course, such as aerobics, jogging or basketball. (Hint: to find these typse of clasess, look under Kinesiology (KIN).
- A class you take for fun and enjoyment!
- Or, you can add a MINOR to your degree objectives - which will show up on your diploma just under your major!
Most students in BA programs are small enough unit-wise and you will need some electives. Consult your Roadmap [new window]
By choosing courses to satisfy the previous requirements and/or electives, you should have many choices of courses to take for Spring 2013 written on your class planner.
University electives - can I add elective classes in Early Priority Registration?
We suggest that you add electives in final Priority Registration. You should use Early Priority Registration to add your 2 top choices of classes, especially those which are hard to get into, or high demand.
