Policies Governing Minors

New Minor Requirements Beginning with the 2015-2016 Academic Catalog
  1. A minor must consist of at least 18 credit hours of coursework.
  2. At least 6 hours of credit toward the minor must be at the 300-400 level.
  3. At least 6 hours of credit toward the minor must be taken at UL Lafayette.

  6. All minors are governed by the college that houses the discipline of the minor, and in the case of cross-college interdisciplinary minors, the primary college of the minor.  The dean of that college will have final say over the contents, rules, minimum performance standards and availability of the minor, and any course substitutions or other deviations from the curriculum specified for the minor.

  9. Completion of a minor will be noted on the student’s transcript.
  10. Each college may specify whether students in that college are required to have a minor to graduate.
  11. Minors will not be awarded retroactively after graduation.
