Request a New Undergraduate Minor

New Minor Template (2022 Word version)

Effective with the fall 2017 catalog, new undergraduate minors should be approved by the program faculty. Additional school approvals should be sought as needed pursuant to the school’s bylaws. As requested by Committee on Educational Policy and approved by Academic Senate on February 17, 2016, all new minors must be submitted to Dr. Serenity Rose King, associate vice president for institutional success and decision support, who will review them for compliance with THECB and SACSCOC standards.

For assistance with minors, please contact Dr. King by email or by telephone at 972.883.6749. Note: If the minor needs to be renamed or modified, please notify Dr. King by email only before the request is submitted and routed through the annual catalog revision process. This will assist the Office of Institutional Success and Decision Support to maintain the University’s authorized program matrices.
