Declaring a Minor
Step 1 - Apply
The required application can be submitted online or with an academic advisor in your major.
Step 2 - Approve
Most minors are auto-approved; they are open to all students and will show as approved immediately after the application is submitted. Some minors are restricted, however, and must be reviewed by the offering department. Restricted minors may require a minimum GPA or an additional application.
Step 3 - Pursue
Meet with your major advisor to have the approved minor added to your profile and complete the process.
All three steps - apply, approve, pursue - can be completed by your major advisor.
