Information for Minors

Declarations for new minors: Students can begin submitting declaration applications as soon as grades are posted on transcripts. Check your transcript regularly to see when the minor appears. Students will not receive any type of notifications, therefore it is the student's responsibility to monitor their status!

Requirements for Completion:

~ A minor in criminal justice is available to all undergraduates except criminal justice majors. The minor requires 18 approved semester hours including: CJUS 1100, 2340, and 12 semester hours of criminal justice electives (6 of these 12 hours must be at the upper-division (3000+) level or above). A grade point average of at least a 2.0 in the minor courses is required including at least a grade of C in CJUS 1100 and CJUS 2340.
