Declaring a minor

As an undergraduate student, you may choose a number of courses to form a minor -- that is, a set of courses based on subject, methodology, or other factors. Many departments offer one or more such minors, several of them interdisciplinary.

  • Minors vary in their requirements from 15 to 21 credit hours, with most having 15 credit hours.
  • Students may not take courses for the minor on a pass/no credit basis.
  • Upon graduation, your minor will be documented on your transcript. However, it will not appear on your diploma.

If you wish to complete a minor:

  • Consult with the adviser for that minor before completing the second course in it
  • Submit an approved Minor Approval Form to the Student Records office.
