How do I add a minor?

You can add a minor through MyMichiganTech.  For instructions on how to do this, go to the Registrar’s Office (Google “registrar mtu”), select the Students menu, then Degree Services. The Change your Major/Minor/Concentration page is the top link.

The Chemical Engineering Department administers four minors:  Polymer Science and Engineering, Mineral Processing, Bioprocess Engineering, and Alternative Energy Technology.  For these minors all students will be granted permission to add the minor.  You should come see the CM advisor to discuss how to fit the minor into your graduation plans.  All of the minors administered by the CM Department  include courses that run alternate years and that have prerequisites.

If you seek to add a minor administered by another department, you should email the advisor of that department to see what permission you need in order to add the minor.

Major add or change requests must be made by 5:00 pm on Wednesday of Week 2 to be effective that semester. Requests made after Wednesday of Week 2 will be effective the following semester.  Major or minor drops become effective immediately in the current semester.   Courses may be double counted between the major and the minor but may not be double counted between minors or between minors and graduate certificates.
