Adding a Minor, a Second Major, or Second Degree

Adding a minor

If you want to declare a minor, the first step is to visit with the department that offers the minor. The department will direct you to follow a specific application process. This usually includes meeting with an advisor and filling out a form, which is then filed with the college office of the department offering the minor. That college, in turn, informs the College of Design.

The form is then filed and shared with both the college office of the department offering the major and the College of Design.

Adding a second degree

If you are interested in pursuing a second degree (for example; if you are pursuing a B.S. and would like to add a B.A.), first meet with the department offering the major to find out their specific application process. Then, fill out the Application for Admission to Additional Undergraduate Degree Program (PDF) form; following the directions attached to the form.
