  • Self Paced means you may need more time to work with one concept, while needing less time with another. OE/OE allows you to choose how much time to spend on a particular concept and where to focus your attention. You are allowed to pick how quickly or slowly you complete your course, as long as you finish on or before your program hours run out.
  • Open Entry means that you can register for any OE/OE program on any OE/OE Open Registration date. Generally those date are the first and third Mondays of the month. However, there are exceptions. Please check the MTECH Calendar for exact OE/OE dates.
  • Open Exit means that you may complete a course sooner than the end of the total OE/OE hours for this program.

Time Management

Due to the flexibility of this schedule, many students have an issue at first with effectively managing their time taking OE/OE classes. There are no regularly schedule assignments and lectures, which can make it more difficult to keep on task, using your own motivation. Students are used to having regular deadlines in place for assignments, and will have to be self-motivated to complete their coursework in a timely manner.

Each instructor will give students a syllabus at orientation that will include suggested due dates to assist them with managing their time. We have found time and time again that students who are regularly turning in coursework are more successful in their course than students who don’t submit work regularly or procrastinate.
