The Certification Process for Students Completing the Requirements for a Minor

Certification of completion of the requirements is done by the program’s faculty committee chair (or the department’s undergraduate advisor). An application for the certification of completion is initiated by the student and submitted to the chair of the faculty oversight committee at the time they complete their undergraduate degree or the certificate program, whichever comes later. Transcript recognition is awarded at that time.

Application for certification must be made directly to the academic unit offering the minor and is not a substitute for the application for graduation required by a student’s degree-granting school or college. After approval of the student’s application, the Office of the Registrar will be notified so that the minor can be shown on the official transcript.
