BSOS College Information about Minors

No more than six credits (or two courses) may be applied to satisfy both the requirements of a minor and a major program. No course may be used to satisfy the requirements of more than one minor. All courses taken for a minor must be completed with a minimum grade of C- or better.

Students should understand that if they attempt to enroll in more than one minor, irresolvable scheduling conflicts may occur. Should a scheduling conflict arise that makes it impossible for a student to enroll in a required minor course, the minor program is under no obligation to offer an alternative course or exception since a minor is not a degree requirement.

When submitting an application for graduation,  a student must include the minor(s) in the diploma application.  If a student decides not to complete a minor, the student must contact the minor advisor to have the minor dropped. The completion of a minor is posted on the student's official transcript only if and when the student completes all requirements for the bachelor's degree.
