Minor: Professional Selling


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. 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.
