How do I add a minor?

First, get the most current listing of requirement from the Registrar’s Office, Degree Services webpage. Look for “minor audits”.

Next, plan ahead because many classes have prerequisites that you need to complete first. You can find prerequisites on the minor audit and in the course descriptions in the Undergraduate Catalog. Contact the minor advisor for help planning.

Finally, talk to your major advisor to determine if any (or all!) of the minor classes can double count towards your major requirements. 

Once you have a workable plan in place then request the addition of the minor through your MyMichiganTech webpage. Directions for how to do this are on the Registrar’s Office, Degree Services webpage.


How do I sign up for a minor?

See the minor advisor first.

If you’d like to add a minor offered by The Department of Chemical Engineering,

  • Minor in Alternative Energy Technology
  • Minor in Bioprocess Engineering
  • Minor in Mineral Processessing
  • Minor in Polymer Science and Engineering

then we require that you submit a minor audit form to the advisor before the minor can be added.  You may then submit a request to add the minor using the online curriculum change portlet on your MyMichiganTech webpage.  Directions for using the curriculum change portlet are available on the Registrar’s Office webpage.


What are the requirements for the minor in alternative energy technology?

To obtain the minor in alternative energy technology, you must take 16 credits from an approved list of courses.  Of these credits, 10 credits may double count with your major requirements; six credits of upper division credits must not double count with your major or with any other minor (except as free elective).  For the specific rules for this minor, see our advising handout on the minor in alternative energy technology.
