Undergraduate Minors


Academic colleges either require or allow a student to complete a minor area of specialization in the student’s degree program. A minor is established by a college upon approval of the Vice President for Academic Affairs. A minor that includes courses from more than one college must receive administrative approval of the dean(s) of the college(s) whose courses are included in the minor, as well as approval of the Vice President for Academic Affairs. Information regarding approved college minors is available from the colleges.

  1. A minor must consist of at least 18 credit hours of coursework.
  2. At least 6 hours of credit toward the minor must be at the 300-400 level.
  3. At least 6 hours of credit toward the minor must be taken at UL Lafayette.
  4. Students must meet all requirements and prerequisites listed in the catalog for all courses in the minor.
  5. The minor description must specify which, if any, general education courses can be double-counted, toward general education requirements and toward the minor.
  6. All minors are governed by the college that houses the discipline of the minor, and in the case of cross-college interdisciplinary minors, the primary college of the minor.  The dean of that college will have final say over the contents, rules, minimum performance standards and availability of the minor, and any course substitutions or other deviations from the curriculum specified for the minor.
  7. At a minimum, a student must have at least a 2.0 cumulative grade point average with no more than one D in the minor area to complete that minor.
  8. Completion of a minor will be noted on the student’s transcript.
  9. Each college may specify whether students in that college are required to have a minor to graduate.
  10. Minors will not be awarded retroactively after graduation.
