Students Majoring in Business

Students majoring in Business Administration are not required to have a minor to meet degree requirements; however, a business student may choose to have a minor outside of Business. The department issuing the minor sets the requirements and determines if the student is eligible to minor in their program. The student must contact the appropriate department to obtain more information.

Non-Business Students

Two different minors are available in the School of Business Administration for non-business majors: Business Administration or Accounting. An application is required and may be obtained at the Student Services Office, 101 Kalkin Hall. Acceptance into the minor program requires completion of the prerequisite courses with a GPA of 2.0 or better in these courses. Admission may be more restrictive if applications exceed the capacity of the program.
