Eligibility – Students must

      • have an established UF GPA of 2.0 or higher
      • be on-track for your major
      • have 45 hours earned
      • be able to complete the minor in a timely fashion
      • complete a minimum of 6 credits exclusive to the minor (credits that will not count toward major(s) or other minors)

Some minors have additional requirements for approval, (e.g., a higher UF GPA, etc.). Be sure to review the Catalog information for the minor in your Catalog year.

Considering a Minor

    • Take introductory courses in the area before applying.
    • When selecting General Education or elective courses, take courses in disciplines that are unfamiliar – you might discover an area of interest this way.
    • To find out more about a minor, read course descriptions, search the UF website for syllabi, and contact the department that offers the minor.
    • Often, a minor will complement your major, and/or provide for a more well-rounded experience. Try to branch out. If you are majoring in a Humanities discipline, such as English or History, consider pursuing in a minor in another area (such as a Social & Behavioral Science, or a math/science-related minor).

      • A minor may not inherently overlap with the student’s major (e.g., a History major may not pursue a History minor).
      • Students must complete a minimum of 6 credits of coursework exclusive to the minor that will not count toward the major or other minors (including FRE Electives for 6 credit difference coursework).
