The purpose of a Minor in Degree Program is to officially recognize a student who successfully completes a prescribed set of courses in a discipline outside their major. To receive a minor, students must be currently enrolled in a bachelor's degree program at Michigan Tech, have indicated that they are pursuing the minor by submitting a Curriculum Add/Drop Form, and have completed all requirements for the minor. The award will be noted on the official transcript.

A student must add a minor to their record no later than the time when the student submits his/her application for graduation. A student cannot be awarded a minor that has the same title as their major or major concentration. No credits may be double counted between minors or between minors and certificates. In addition to meeting the requirements of the minor as specified by the academic unit offering the minor, a student must: 

  • Maintain a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.0 for courses completed as part of the minor.
  • Complete at least 9 credit hours of the 3000-level or higher minor-required courses at Michigan Tech (residency requirement for a minor). Courses that meet the “at Michigan Tech” requirement are defined as courses listed in the course catalog and taught by a Michigan Tech instructor either on campus, at field locations, or through distance learning.
