Requirements for Academic Minors for Undergraduates

An undergraduate student may choose to pursue an academic minor. An academic minor at UVM shall be comprised of a set of courses that reflect a coherent body of knowledge in one or more disciplines. A minor shall require between fifteen and twenty credits of course work, of which at least nine credits must be at the 100-level or above. A minor shall require no more than the credit equivalent of three standard classroom courses (nine to twelve credits) of prerequisites that are not part of the minor, although exceptions to this rule may be allowed with just cause.

At least half of the courses used to satisfy the minor must be taken at UVM. The student may choose any set of applicable courses from his/her transcript to satisfy the minor requirements. The grade-point average of these chosen courses must be at least 2.00. Courses used to satisfy a minor may not be taken pass/no pass.
