Completion of a Minor Following Graduation

Bryan College of Health Sciences offers minors that enable a student to pursue in-depth education in a second discipline that supports and enhances the primary field of study.

Bryan College of Health Sciences will award a minor following graduation provided the courses needed to fulfill the minor are taken at Bryan College of Health Sciences. At the time of graduation, the student must have met all curricular requirements for the major and fulfilled all graduation obligations to the institution.

Courses in the minor must be taken for a grade, not Pass/Fail (P/F). Effective Fall 2013, the grade point for those courses must be at least “C+” for entering students. For students that entered prior to Fall 2013, the grade point for the courses must be at least a “C”. The student’s transcript will reflect the completion of the minor once the coursework has been completed.
