Academic Regulations Minors


  • 11.0: Minors
  • 11.1: Establishment. A minor-subject program may be established by any academic unit at IPFW subject to approval by the school/division containing the unit, to approval by the Curriculum Review Subcommittee, to acceptance by the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, and to publication of requirements for completion of the program in the Bulletin or its supplement. Completion of any minor must require a minimum of 12 credits, including at least six resident credits at the 200-level or above.
  • 11.2: Certification. A student may earn a minor by providing the degree-granting unit verification of acceptance into the minor program and a statement of the minor program requirements and by successfully completing these requirements. At the same time as degree certification is processed, the degree-granting unit shall certify the student's completion of all requirements.
    • Certification shall be based on the student's choice of any set of minor program requirements in effect since the student's most recent admission to or re-entry into IPFW.
  • 11.3: Transcript entry. Concurrent with completion of degree requirements, the Registrar shall make an appropriate entry on the student's transcript to signal completion of the minor. No entry shall be made on the transcript if the minor is not completed by the time the student is certified for graduation.
