What is an ELECTIVE?
A. If you are pursuing an associate degree, you will probably be required to choose 2 or 3 electives from a list of courses. These are usually courses in the social sciences or humanities and required by the Ohio Board of Regents (our governing board) for anyone in our college who is pursuing a degree. Some programs also offer a choice of technical electives geared toward that major. Since they are elective, you can choose the ones that interest you from the list.

- Does an elective course or two in Asian history, religion, language, or art disqualify a candidate?
- How will an elective caesarean affect my immediate postnatal period?
