Declaring the Minor
Students declare the minor by the end of the eighth week of the semester that they add themselves to the degree list.
The Minor Completion petition should be presented to the undergraduate major advisor with a recent BearFacts printout of the student’s grades. If all courses needed for the minor have already been completed, the petition will be forwarded to the Registrar’s office. If the student needs courses that he or she is currently taking, the petition will be forwarded to the Registrar’s office at the end of the semester. No course taken as p/np may be used to satisfy any requirement of the minor. Check the Berkeley Academic Guide for more information that is up-to-date.
