CS Minor FAQs

 

The online CS minor application will be available from 12:00 am EST on Monday, January 3rd through 11:59 pm EST on Friday, February 18th.  

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. Although the application is online, students must still complete the undergraduate change of minor form which must be signed by the student and their primary major advisor. This form must be uploaded to the online application in order for the application to be considered complete. Only completed applications will be reviewed!

Please note, the CS minor advisor will not sign the undergraduate change of minor form until a student is accepted into the CS minor program. Do not send your form to the CS minor advisor, instead upload your form to the online application.

Students who submit a completed application will receive an email notification explaining the status of their application no sooner than 11:59 pm EST on Friday, March 4th.  

 

The online application must include a signed copy of the undergraduate change of minor form. The links below will serve as a guide through the minor application process.
