Important Reminders about Minors

The following policies apply:

  • No more than two courses counted for a major may also be counted for a minor (except a biology/chemistry, a finance/accounting, or a finance/economics combination).
  • No more than two courses counted for a minor can count toward another minor.
  • Students who wish to pursue a minor should notify the Office of Academic Advising of this intent. The minor will not appear on the student’s transcript unless this declaration is made.
  • A student who is following the requirements for a major outlined in an earlier catalog may choose a minor from a later catalog. The reverse does not apply. This policy is only applicable in choosing a minor; not a second major.
