*Declaration of Minor : During your final semester, fill out DECLARATION OF AN ACADEMIC MINOR FORM (print out from this link, or obtain the form from the Registrat's Office in Whitmore Hall). Fill out the form and attach to it a copy of your unofficial transcript. Clearly mark /highlight the courses on your transcript that you wish to count toward your minor. Place the form and the transcript in an envelope and bring them to faculty assigned to you, based on the first letter of your last name (find out from above table. Please see Dr. Steve Forrest for Japanese Program). If the faculty is not there slide the envelope under the door. Once you have carried out these instructions, send the faculty an email to let the faculty know you have filed the documents in her/his office. The faculty will let you know by way of a reply to the email when the minor certification is complete and when you can pick up your form and transcript from them. Please let the faculty know if you have further questions or if you would like to meet to discuss any details.
