USAL-LED Minor Requirement

Minor Requirements

University Studies-Leadership requires that students complete 2 minors as part of the degree plan. To be approved for a minor, students must meet with the minor-granting department for official approval.

All minor courses must be completed with a C or better and must be declared before your final semester at Texas A&M.

If a student wants to substitute a course for a required course in a minor, they must receive written permission from the minor-granting department. This permission can be a signed form or email and must be sent to the University Studies-Leadership Advisor for final approval.

If you are currently a USAL-LED student and are interested in changing one of your minors, you must complete the required application process from the new minor department. Once you receive official approval from that department, you must submit written proof to your University Studies-Leadership Advisor. This proof can be an email from the new minor Advisor or a signed approval form by the new minor Advisor. Some minors have approval forms, but if they do not you can provide them with the following form.
