Minor Course Requirements

Requirements for academic minors are set by the department offering the minor. Substitutions may not be made without written approval of the minor department. Courses in the minor may not be taken pass/fail. A student may not complete a minor in his or her major field.

Process to Declare a Minor

To assure that completion of the minor is appropriately recognized and posted to the transcript, the student should: (1) formally declare the intent to complete a minor by submitting an Academic Status Update for General Student form with the appropriate minor code entered (techregistrar.wvutech.edu/forms); (2) consult with the academic advisor to incorporate course requirements for the minor into schedule planning; and (3) when applying to graduate and receive a diploma, indicate the minor for which certification is requested.
