Personalized Minor Form


University policy

A student whose educational objectives cannot be best served by existing minors may design a personalized minor suited to individual needs. The student, after completing a minimum of 30 hours, must petition in writing the department head of the area in which the minor is to be taken. This petition is prepared in consultation with the student’s advisor and the department of the minor; it includes a list of the proposed courses to be taken with a detailed statement of justification. The department head may accept or reject the petition. When the proposal is agreed upon by both the student and the department head, a personalized program is written and forwarded to the Office of the Registrar, Carrington Hall, room 320.
