Add a Minor

Students can use the self-service Change of Degree Application (CODA) portal to add a minor to your degree plan.

Requirements and Restrictions for Minor Admission

Minimum Requirements

Most minor programs at NC State require that the student has completed at least 12 credit hours of NC State coursework and has a GPA of 2.0. Some minors require additional coursework be completed prior to being allowed admission into the program. See the link below for a list of admission requirements for all of NC State’s minor programs, sorted by college.

If you have not met the minimum requirements for program admission, you will not be allowed to complete the application.

If you have met the minor’s entry requirements, follow the steps to complete the application as prompted.

Additional Requirements for Admission

Some minor programs additionally have preferred requirements for admission. These preferred requirements will not prevent a student from submitting the Add a Minor form for the program; however if the preferred requirements have not been met, the student’s CODA action may be reviewed by the minor coordinator for admission approval.

Majors Excluded from Minors

Some minor programs do not allow admission for degree-seeking students in certain majors or major concentrations. For example, B.S. Computer Engineering students are not allowed to add the Computer Programming minor.

Similarly, students in the B.A. English – Literature concentration are unable to add the American Literature minor, but students in the B.A. English – Film concentration are able to add this minor.
