Minors at DeSales consist of 6 courses and will be indicated on the student’s permanent
record. Students may not take courses required for the minor
under the pass-fail option. A G.P.A. of 2.0 or higher is required
in the 6 courses required by the minor, at least 3 of which must
be completed at DeSales University. The student is responsible for
scheduling his/her minor program in such a way that he/she can
take the required courses as they are available during the four-year
period. The choice of a minor should be made in consultation
with the student’s advisor.
Please note that in some cases scheduling conflicts between required major and minor courses may
occur, preventing a student from completion of a minor. Tutorials
and independent study courses are not considered an acceptable
way of resolving such conflicts. For this reason, a student would do
well to begin taking appropriate courses as early as possible in his/
her collegiate career. Courses used to satisfy area of emphasis in the liberal studies program may not be applied toward a minor.
