Admissions and Certification of Minor
Students first download a Departmental Minor Declaration Form and consult with their major advisor for approval of the minor program. After the student obtains the major advisor's signature, he/she meets with the minor advisor to develop a plan of study indicating required courses and expected dates of completion. A copy of the student's minor plan of study will be kept on file in the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures.
A University Minor Declaration Form should be submitted to Registration and Records for inclusion of the minor on the student's official record. Paperwork for certification should be completed no later than during the registration period for the student's final semester at NC State. Students should meet with the Coordinator of Advising, Ms. Susan Navey-Davis (919.515.9288, http://www4.ncsu.edu/~navey/, 321 Withers), to complete the final certification. Students will receive official recognition on their transcripts for the completed minor.
