Students have two options: they can opt not to complete the Minor, OR they may decide to postpone graduation until the Minor requirements have been fulfilled. 


Faculty and Academic Advisors

Q: Why do I need an advisor?

Academic planning and degree completion is the student's responsibility; however, obtaining academic advising from an advisor in the student’s area of study is highly recommended. Your advisor can assist you with your academic and career planning and can serve as a valuable mentor. Education students are required to meet with their advisor each semester and are encouraged to keep advisors apprised of their academic and career plans.
