Academic Minors (College of Business Majors only)

Academic minors require approximately one-half the upper-level credits required for a major. Students interested in a particular minor should obtain the specific requirements from the appropriate college. The college may require the same admission or retention standards as required for the major.

Each academic minor conforms to the University requirements:

1. A minimum of 8 semester hours of credit used to satisfy the requirements of a minor must be from USFSM courses.

2. A student may not have a major and a minor in the same program. Colleges courses used in the major may not apply to the minor.

3. USF System institution coursework for a minor must have a GPA of at least 2.0.

4. Only an undergraduate degree-seeking student at USFSM is eligible for a minor.

5. A minor can be applied for and received only in conjunction with applying for and receiving a baccalaureate degree except for students who have already received a baccalaureate degree from USFSM who may earn certification of a minor by taking additional undergraduate coursework at the University and applying for the certification.

6. See the college sections for information on USF Sarasota-Manatee minors.

Students are required to apply for a College of Business minor on their graduation application.
