Minor: Risk Management/Insurance

DEADLINE

Students completing a degree in the College of Business: There is no need to submit an application for the minor separate from the degree application. Minors in the College of Business will automatically be certified along with the degree certification, provided that the minor has been formally declared and is listed on the electronic degree application.

Students with majors outside the College of Business: Submit the STAR audit for the minor following the directions below. The application MUST be submitted BEFORE the degree application deadline for the semester in which you plan to graduate. Check advising schedules for specific dates each term.

Minors cannot be earned after the degree has been conferred.

Instructions

When you have registered for, or completed your last class for the minor, print the Risk Management and Insurance Minor STAR degree audit for the minor showing that all requirements have been completed or are “in progress,” fill in the information required, and sign the audit.

  • STAR audits can be generated at https://degreeaudit.nmsu.edu
  • For degree be sure to select Risk Management and Insurance Minor in the drop down menu; it might be near the bottom.

Deliver the audit to the Department of Finance, Business Complex Room 221, for certification. The Department will forward the certified audit to the appropriate office where they will ensure that the minor appears on your final transcript.
