Minor

Step 1

Notification

When a department has decided to propose a new minor, the dean of the academic unit must receive written approval from academic affairs to proceed with the development of a proposal. Contact academic affairs by sending an email to savcaa@iupui.edu.

Step 2

IUPUI New Minor Proposal Form

Complete all sections of the IUPUI new minor proposal form. Following final school-level approval, send the proposal form with a cover letter to academic affairs requesting review and approval.

All proposals will be reviewed using a rubric. Schools should follow the rubric while developing the proposal to avoid delays in the approval process.

Required Items:

  • Cover Letter
  • New Minor Proposal Form

Send your materials to savcaa@iupui.edu.

Step 3

Undergraduate Affairs Committee (UAC)

After academic affairs approves the proposal, a copy will be forwarded by academic affairs to the UAC for review and approval.

Step 4

Presentation to UAC

The chair of the UAC will invite the originating unit to present the proposal at a regularly scheduled UAC meeting.

Step 5

Chief Academic Officer

Following approval by the UAC, the proposal will be forwarded by the UAC to the chief academic officer for approval.

Step 6

Unit and Campus Notifications

If approved, the chief academic officer will send notification of approval to the dean of the originating unit, the Office of the Registrar, the director of the Office of Student Financial Services, and the director of admissions for coding and implementation. Though no additional approvals are needed beyond that of the IUPUI chief academic officer, University Academic Planning and Policy also will be notified to allow for updating of necessary tables.
