CS Minor Application Information:

Students must complete an application and be accepted into the CS Minor program. Please do not submit a change of minor form until instructed as the form alone is in no way an application for the program.

The application window is currently closed. The next admission window will reopen in Phase II of the Fall term.

The application includes 19 – 21 questions (depending on the minor selection) and may take approximately 5 – 10 minutes to successfully complete through a personal computer or portable device. When students have completed the application, they should review and save a summary of their responses. 

No applications will be reviewed until the deadline passes and the review period begins.

Students who submit a completed application will receive an email notification explaining the status of their application no sooner than TBA.

NO late applications accepted. 

Deadline for all CS minor applications is TBA
