CS Minor FAQs

 

The online CS minor application will be available from 12:00 am EST on Monday, August 22nd through 11:59 pm EST on Friday, September 30th.  

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 after acceptance in to the CS minor program. Only completed applications will be reviewed!

Please note, the CS minor advisors will not sign the undergraduate change of minor form until a student is accepted into the CS minor program. Do not send your form via DocuSign to the CS minor advisor by requesting a signature. You will include the form after receiving an acceptance email ONLY.

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, October 14th.  

 

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.

Undergraduate Change of Minor Form – CS Minor Example

Undergraduate Change of Minor Form – Registrar’s Website

PLEASE NOTE: Only complete the Change of Minor form for the student portions and request the MAJOR advisor's signature. The CS minor advisor CANNOT sign the undergraduate change of minor form until a student is officially accepted into the program. Therefore, if the form is submitted via DocuSign to the CS minor advisor, it will have to be declined. A student must submit their change of minor form ONLY to the online application (not DocuSign) WITHOUT the CS minor advisor’s signature.
