    PSYCHOLOGY MINOR

    For a student to elect a Psychology minor and have it certified on his/her final transcript, the minor should be declared when the final minor course is scheduled on the student's record.  Usually this is the quarter before graduation.  This way the minor adviser can determine that the correct minor courses have been or will be completed.  The actual deadline to turn in the minor petition is the 10th day of instruction of the quarter of graduation. Students may obtain the form for declaring a minor at their respective college Dean’s office.
