  • At least 8 credits of the minor must be applied only to that minor and may not be used to fulfill requirements of the student’s major, concentration, an undergraduate certificate, or another minor.
  • Students must have a minimum GPA of 2.00 in the coursework applied to a minor.
  • At least 6 credits of the minor must be completed at Mason.
