  MINOR PROGRAMS

The purpose of Minor programs is to allow students to follow a planned program of coursework in addition to their own major.  Minor program requirements vary.

Minor programs are self-advised.  They are structured to enable students to follow the program with limited advice.

The student must complete an application form for each minor and submit it to the Office of Records and Registration no later than their last semester prior to graduation.  A student is limited to two minors he/she can apply for or complete. Minor requirements must be complete at the time of graduation.  The dean of the school in which the graduating student is majoring will certify satisfactory completion of the minor(s).

The official transcript will show any minor program the student has satisfactorily completed at the time of graduation.
