Business Minor Policies and Declaration

Important Notes Regarding Registration and Completion

  • Students may earn only one minor in business disciplines.  A student may earn a second minor if it is offered jointly by the School of Business and another School or College, and all coursework used to satisfy that second minor is from non-Business coursework. View the University Catalog for additional details and limitations.
  • Non-Business majors may attempt no more than 18 credits (approximately 6 courses) of 3000/4000-level coursework offered by the School of Business, which includes work transferred in as equivalent to courses offered by the School of Business. View the University Catalog for additional details.
  • Students may use the online permission number request form when unable to self-enroll in a course used for the minor, noting all pre-requisites must be met to be granted permission to take a course
  • Unless a higher standard is noted in the description of a specific minor program, completion of a minor requires that a student earn a “C” (2.0) grade or better in each of the required courses for that minor.
    • Completion of the Analytics minor requires that a student earn a “C+” (2.3) grade or better in each of the required courses.
  • Access to courses is on a space-available basis, and the School of Business is unable to guarantee completion of a minor, noting most minors take at least four terms to complete after pre-requisite courses are fulfilled
  • Please see minor details regarding restrictions for certain majors

  • Request that your minor be removed from your record by completing the minor cancellation form and submitting it to the Registrar's Office (registrar@uconn.edu). Please do not submit the cancellation form to the School of Business.

Important Notes Regarding Minor Declaration

Use the form below to declare a School of Business minor only once you have completed the pre-requisites to declare a minor (in-progress courses or courses not yet showing on your UConn transcript do not count). Once submitted, please allow approximately 2-4 weeks for processing. You will know it has been processed when you receive a confirmation email and see the minor appearing in your Academic Requirements Report in Student Admin.

When you are ready to graduate, you will need to submit plans of study for both your major and your minor (how to submit your electronic Plan of Study. You can only do this after you have applied to graduate). Note that final approval is completed by Degree Audit at the Registrar’s Office before graduation.

Important Note for International Students: If you are currently an international student (F-1), you must notify ISSS and obtain a new Form I-20 once your minor declaration is approved. Please visit the ISSS website for more information.
