APPLYING FOR A PHHP MINOR
The College of Public Health and Health Professions offers four undergraduate minors: Communications Sciences & Disorders, Deaf & Hearing Sciences, Health Science, and Public Health. The College reviews all minor forms twice a year – May 15th and October 15th. Students submitting their minor form by May 15 are eligible to start minor coursework Summer B or Fall semester, whereas students submitting their minor form by October 15 are eligible to start minor coursework Spring semester. Applications received after the deadline will not be considered until the following review period. Students will be informed of decisions within one month of the application deadline (June 15 or November 15 respectfully).
Minor forms are reviewed twice a year – May 15th and October 15th.
To be eligible for a minor, students must meet the minimum credit requirement, overall and prerequisite GPA requirement, and complete all prerequisite coursework (have a letter grade, a satisfactory grade, or AP/IB test credit) by the review deadline. Course equivalents from state and community colleges are acceptable substitutes for minor prerequisite courses. If any prerequisite coursework is not completed by the deadline (May 15 or October 15), the minor form will be denied and you will be required to resubmit a new minor form once all prerequisite coursework has been completed. To learn about specific requirements for each minor, please select the minor link below.
