Seminar Requirement

Continuous registration in ME 590 or TAM 500 is required. Seminar credit cannot be counted toward coursework requirements. Students are required to attend a minimum of 4 seminars per semester. 

Students who are enrolled in a course that conflicts with ME 590 or TAM 500 must request a registration override, register for ME 590 or TAM 500, and attend alternate seminars. Students who arrive late or leave early from a seminar will not receive credit for attending.

To complete seminar registration with a conflict:

1. Request a registration override by contacting the Undergraduate Programs Office at Include your name, UIN, and the course you are enrolled in that is in conflict with the seminar.

2. You will receive an email when the override is entered.

3. You must register for ME 590 or TAM 500 after the override is entered.
