Policies Governing Minors

Students who wish to declare a minor in the College of Arts and Sciences, or one of the interschool minors, should speak with the undergraduate chair or other appropriate representative of the department or program.

All minor courses must be taken for a grade, not pass/fail. See Pass/Fail Grade policies for spring and fall 2020, and spring 2021.

Students in the College may pursue interschool minors that draw on courses offered by Nursing, Wharton* and Engineering. Interschool minors are identified on the list of minors.

Since adding an interschool minor may require students to complete more than the minimum number of course units for graduation, students should consult with an advisor in the College Office when planning their program. As with all minors, only Arts and Sciences courses within the minor counts towards the Arts and Sciences requirement of the B.A. degree.

Students planning to complete a minor in the School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS) will be required to complete a minor request form for non-SEAS students. Forms are available at the SEAS Academic Programs Office or can be downloaded from the SEAS website.

* Except for Statistics, it is not possible to do a minor in the Wharton School.

College students may apply for minors offered by the School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS). As with all minors, only Arts and Sciences courses within the minor counts towards the Arts and Sciences requirement of the B.A. degree.
