California State University, Long Beach Policy Statement

96-13 (rev.)

November 21, 1997

Academic Minors

(This policy supersedes Policy Statements 78-37 and 96-13)

This policy was recommended by the Academic Senate on May 16, 1996
and concurred by the President on June 14, 1996.

A minor consists of a minimum of 18 units, as specified by the department or program, at least nine of which must be upper division. The minor may be in a single subject or interdisciplinary. No courses in the major department may be counted toward the minor. Courses outside the major department may count both toward the minor and toward requirements for the major. The minimum overall GPA in courses toward the minor is 2.0. A minimum of six units of coursework toward the minor must be taken at CSULB.

Students should refer to the requirements of the department and college of their major, to see whether a minor is required for that major. Even if a minor is not required, students may elect to complete one or more minors from those available and have that so noted on the transcript.

EFFECTIVE: Fall 1998
