Schmidt College of Arts & Letters, and Military Science.
How to Declare Your Leadership Studies Minor
- You need to DECLARE a major BEFORE declaring any minor.
- EVALUATE Your Current Academic Standing: Students may pursue a minor only if the requirements for that minor can be completed without extending the anticipated graduation date.
- If your academic standing allows for you to declare a minor and you have sincere interest in exploring and/or declaring a Leadership Studies Minor, please set up a CONSULTATION. The purpose of this meeting is to explore the skills and competencies gained by completing this minor and learn about the requirements. GATHER information about the minor or contact email@example.com.
- Your final step will be to COMPLETE the Undergraduate Major/Minor Change Form to officially declare the Leadership Studies minor and complete a Minor Checklist to plan when you will take your courses. In order to do this you will need to meet with your college advisor.
- Schedule an appointment with your College advisor if you have earned over 45 credit hours and have a declared major.
