Declare Minor

  1. Student finds an advisor. The student should make an appointment with the LAS Director and an advisor within their chosen minor to discuss the requirements of the minor.
     
  2. Student completes the LAS Declaration of Minor Form. Once the student decides to declare a minor, they must complete the LAS Declaration of Minor form and obtain the signatures of their advisor(s). The original copy must be brought to the CIS/LAS office, Eaton Hall Room 111, where it will be maintained in the student's file. It is suggested that the student also keep a copy for their own records. Note: Student Services does not need a copy of the Declaration of a Minor form.
     
  3. The student and advisor decide upon a Capstone Project. The student signs up for LAS 180: Latin American Studies Capstone Project via the Student Services One-One-One Course Form with their primary capstone project advisor as the instructor at the beginning of the semester that they will complete their project work.
     
  4. Student completes the LAS Minor Certification Form. Once the student has completed all required coursework and capstone project work, they must complete the LAS Minor Certification form and obtain signatures and grades from project advisor(s) and the LAS director. This usually takes place prior to the last day of classes. The original copy must be brought to the CIS/LAS office, where it will be maintained in the student's file. It is suggested that the student make a copy for their own records. The CIS/LAS office will submit a copy of the completed Minor Certification form to Student Services, Dowling Hall, on the students behalf.
     
  5. The primary capstone project advisor enters the LAS 180 grade into the SIS system.

    Important Note: It is the student's responsibility to deliver the original Minor Certification form to the CIS / LAS office within the last several days of classes in order to receive credit for the minor.
