Frequently Asked Questions

Bono quoteHow do I declare Leadership Studies as my minor?

Students who want to change their current major, change catalog requirement year, or add an additional major, concentration, or minor must meet with their current college advisor or the college advisor of the proposed new major/minor.  By meeting with an advisor, students ensure the major/minor selection meets career goals as well as abides by University policy.  Certain majors require specific minors or limit your minor choices. Some majors require candidacy prior to enrollment in the upper-division courses.
