Minor Programs

  • Students may enroll in a minor program no earlier than their third and no later than their fifth semester.
  • To be eligible to apply for admission to a minor program, the cumulative GPA (CGPA) of a student has to be 3.0 or greater.
  • A student cannot be enrolled in more than one minor program at the same time.
  • A student who has left or was expelled from a minor program may not register to the same minor program again.
  • Course transcripts for minor programs are kept separately from major programs. GPA’s for major and minor programs are calculated separately from each other. A student’s major program transcript does not include courses taken as part of a minor program.
  • Courses within the major curriculum, or their equivalent courses, may not be taken to fulfill the requirements of a minor program.
  • If you have already taken the course previously in your major program, it will not be counted in your minor program.
  • If the CGPA of a student is below 3.0 for two consecutive semesters, the student is expelled from the minor program.
  • A student is expelled from the minor program if he/she fails to take any courses from this program for two consecutive semesters. However, semesters spent at a foreign institution on an exchange program are not regarded as part of this duration.
  • Outgoing exchange students may apply to substitute a single course they have taken and succeeded at a foreign institution for an equivalent course in their minor program. Applications are evaluated by the relevant faculty or school board. A course taken during an exchange program cannot be transferred to both a major and a minor program.
  • To qualify for a minor program certificate, a student must complete all courses for the minor program with a C or higher grade and have a minor program CGPA of at least 2.5. A minor program certificate is not equivalent to a diploma.
  • A student may choose to leave a minor program at any time. Performance in a minor program does not affect graduation from the major program.
  • Extra time is not granted if a student completes all the graduation requirements of his/her major before fulfilling the requirements of an enrolled minor program. The student is expelled from the minor program in this case.
  • A student enrolled in a minor program may take a maximum of two minor courses per semester. An additional minor course may be taken if approved by the relevant dean or director.
  • Minor courses will be listed in the minor transcript even if the minor program is terminated.
