A minor is a coherent program in some field or group of related fields other than a student’s major. Minors range in size from 15-30 semester units, at least 9 of which must be upper division. No student is required to have a minor, so it will not appear on the student’s record or diploma unless they request it. The minimum grade point average for a minor is 2.00, so students must take at least one course on the A-F grading pattern. At least 9 units must be taken at Cal State East Bay for a minor to be recognized on the student’s diploma and/or permanent record.

Courses in a minor may be double-counted in G.E. However, at least 9 semester units of a minor must not be double-counted in the discipline of the major for Cal State East Bay to recognize the minor.

Students who wish to complete a minor must submit a “Change of Major, Minor, Option” form available online at the Student Records Forms website.

Students cannot receive a minor in the same department as their major unless the disciplines are distinct (e.g., French and Spanish, Art History and Studio Art). A minor is recognized only when a baccalaureate degree is awarded.
