Minors and Certifications


Undergraduate students may select a minor or minors in addition to a major. If you change your major, you might consider using the course work in your previous major for a minor. Guidelines for minors are as follows:

  • For help with declaring a minor, please contact the University Registrar's Office.
  • Students cannot earn a major and minor in the same field of study.
  • Minors are only available to students pursuing a bachelor's degree.
  • A student must achieve a 2.0 grade point average in the course work of the minor.
  • Substitutions to course requirements for a minor are the jurisdiction of the program offering the minor.
  • At least half the course requirements of a minor must be completed at OCU.
  • Successful completion of the minor will be noted on the student’s academic transcript.
