A minor in University College consists of a minimum of 15 units of authorized course work in selected academic disciplines or interdisciplinary programs. The course requirements for a minor are determined by each department or program. At least 9 units must be advanced-level course work (300-level or above), and at least 6 of the 9 units in advanced course work must be completed at University College. A maximum of 3 units of transfer credit may be applied to the minor.
A minor is available only to students admitted to a University College Bachelor of Science degree program. Course work taken as part of the minor may fulfill distribution requirements, but the same course may not apply to both a major and a minor. Only courses receiving a grade of C- or higher will be applied to the minor. In order to be awarded the minor, students must earn a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0 in all courses taken toward the minor. Students may not pursue a minor in an area for which a certificate is offered in University College. To declare a minor, you must meet with an academic advisor in University College. In this appointment you will need to complete a Minor Application Form before beginning the final semester of study toward a Bachelor of Science.
