Electives in E*Value

Availability information can be found in E*Value for some, but not all elective clerkships. Electives clerkships can be set up on E*Value one of two ways, referred to as the E*Value Status.  Some courses availability pre-entered into E*Value.  Other courses are only entered once a student is given permission to take the elective.  The E*Value status of an elective is listed in the Clerkship Catalog information. Electives are either one or the other – there is no elective with pre-set availability that would have different “hidden” availability.  Likewise, all electives requiring E*Value set-up will not have pre-set availability open in E*Value.  All required clerkships are pre-set up in E*Value.
