Admission into the minor. Students are expected to declare a minor formally. With the assistance of an advisor in the minor department, students should complete the “Declaration of Minor” form before or during the third year of full-time enrollment.

Grade point average. A 2.0 grade point average in the minor is required for completion of the degree. The minor GPA is calculated based on all courses applicable to the minor that the student has attempted at UA.

Upper-level residency. A minimum of 6 hours of 300- and 400-level courses in the minor must be earned on this campus.

Ancillary courses. Grades in ancillary courses are not computed into the minor GPA. The French minor requires the successful completion of the following courses:

Courses Hours
FR 101 and FR 102 (or FR 103)* 4–8
   
*Or proficiency or placement.

Additional minor requirements. If students test out of any of the courses required for the minor, this does not reduce the total number of credit hours required for the minor. Students are responsible for ensuring that they have met all University, college, major, and minor requirements. However, each student must meet with an advisor in the major department for academic planning and to be cleared for registration each semester. College advisors are also available for additional assistance with minor, college, and University requirements.
