Number of Allowable Minors:
No student may qualify for more than one minor.
Time limit for Applying for the Minor:
Approval to pursue a minor should be obtained within the first two semesters after majoring.
Number of Credits to Qualify for a Minor:
Students will need to take a minimum of 18 credits to qualify for a minor (Effective for 2008 cohort and onward). In case some of the minor courses are part of the student’s degree plan requirements, the maximum allowable overlap is 8 (or two courses) credits (Effective for 2010 cohort and onward).
Number of Allowable Course Substitutions to Complete the Requirements for a Minor:
A maximum of 18 credits (or equal to the total number of credits for the applied minor) can be substituted from the departmental electives of a student’s program to satisfy the requirements of a minor.
Approval of substitution requests made to fulfill minor requirements is considered conditional. If 50% or more of minor courses are fulfilled then the initial approval will be considered confirmed. In case less than 50% of the minor courses are completed, substitution requests will be considered rejected and the deficiency in credits should be made up from major (or departmental) electives.
Courses Needed to Satisfy Minor Requirements:
Courses specific to each minor are defined by the respective Department. These courses can be taken by students provided that there is no timetabling conflict and the maximum capacity of a given course not exceeded. Neither colleges that offer minor nor student’s college would take responsibility for registering students to fulfill minor conditions.

A CGPA of ≥2.5 is required for students who wish to minor from the College of Science and College of Economics and Political Science.
Required Grade to Qualify for a Minor:
An average GPA of ≥2.00 must be achieved in the courses taken for the minor in order to be awarded a minor. Effective for 2010 cohort and onward.
Time Limit to Complete Minor Requirements:
The completion of graduation requirements for the major degree prevents further study to complete a minor.
