Additional Information for Minors

Upper-division forms should be completed and signed by the major advisor after at least 60 earned hours.  Then, bring the signed form to the JHS minor director for review and signature. Remember: no course can earn credit in both a major and a minor.  Regular advising and visits to our website will inform students of updates to the minor and new course options.  The JHS minor director will always be happy to meet with you to discuss your plans and ensure all the courses you take count for the minor.
