An elective must be:

  • An organized course.
  • Instructional in nature.

  • A subject that utilizes a textbook.
  • Instructed with a pre-determined objective standard of evaluation that would include a combination of the following: tests, quizzes, homework, projects.

Tip: A good question to ask yourself as you prepare an elective course is, "Would a conventional school accept this as a credit course?"
