Undergraduate Minor Proposals

This guidance describes the steps required to launch an Undergraduate Minor proposal originating from Purdue West Lafayette for University approvals. Please see Purdue Fort Wayne or Purdue Northwest guidance for proposals originating from these campuses, or reach out to campus contacts.

An Undergraduate Minor proposal provides a secondary area of specialization. Minors are designed for knowledge outside of the student’s primary program, unlike a concentration, which is meant to provide students specialized coursework within their degree. If the proposal seeks to restrict students except those from a specific major, please see Undergraduate Concentration proposal.

A minor is an internal proposal. Minors do not use a Classification of Instructional Program (CIP) code. Earned minors are noted on student transcripts. Lists of existing minors can be found on the Office of the Registrar Active Curriculum Reports website.

Proposals are reviewed on a rolling basis once they enter the workflow. Time to complete indicates typical completion timeframe from proposal launch to completion in workflow. Some proposals may complete faster, while others may need more time based on when they are launched. Please see Key Planning Considerations below.
