Procedure for Scheduling Approved Electives

Following these guidelines will ensure that the changes made to your schedule are made promptly and correctly.

Contact the Elective Director or Coordinator to determine if there is space available in the desired time slot. The Elective Director or Coordinator’s names, phone number and email address can be found under the listing for each approved elective.

Once the Elective Coordinator or Director has approved you to add their elective, please submit a Student Scheduling Request to have the elective added to your schedule. (Please note that research and self-designed electives will require additional supporting documentation.)

Approved electives are those experiences that have been approved by the College of Medicine at the University of Illinois at Chicago and appear in the on-line elective catalog.
