Adding a Minor Considerations:

While a minor can enhance a student’s educational experience, it needs to be well-planned in order for the student to graduate in a timely manner. Students who desire a minor should declare it prior to completing 90 BYU credits; otherwise, they will need to petition to add the minor.

Some minors need to be pre-approved by other Advisement Centers before students may declare them (see list below).

Students will need to petition (fill out Part 2 of the minor request form) to add a minor if:

  1. They have over 90 BYU credits (not including language challenge exam credits or transfer credits) OR
  2. They have a double major OR
  3. They have a currently declared minor OR
  4. The minor is not related to their major (see the "Explore Related Minors" form)
