Other Important Information

Additional pre-requisite courses may be required to enroll in required minor courses.

At least 20 units applied to a minor program must be unique to the minor (i.e., not double-counting towards any other major or minor program).

Each minor course must be taken for a letter grade (unless a course is only offered Pass/No Pass), and students must earn a C or better in each course. Students must also have an overall grade-point average of 2.0 or better in the minor. Successful completion of the minor is indicated on the transcript and diploma.
