Minors

A minor is an area of concentrated study, outside of the major area of study.  A minor requires a minimum of four classes (16 credits) in a directed area of study.  Minors may require coursework in a student's degree program beyond the minimum of 41 classes (161 credits) required for completion of the major.  Minors are not required for graduation though a student may elect to pursue a minor in an area of additional interest.  Minors appear on a student’s transcript at student declaration, and requirements must be completed at the time of graduation.  

NOTE: Coursework taken outside of Kettering University (guest credits) is not transferable towards a minor.  This rule does not apply to course credits earned by a student before enrolling at Kettering.  

A student wishing to declare a minor should consult the head of the department that houses the minor, or a faculty advisor in that department. The student is then responsible for completing a Minor Declare/Change Request Form (this form is necessary to declare or remove a minor). This form must then be submitted to the Office of the Registrar for processing. The Registrar, in turn, will update the student record.
