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 the senior associate vice chancellor for academic affairs to proceed with the development of a proposal.

Required item

Step 1.1

C4 approval

Any new minors (or changes to minors) in technology or computing should receive approval from the C4 committee before continuing in the approval process. Any questions should be directed to the C4 co-chairs.

Step 2

Proposal form

Complete all sections of the minor proposal form. Following final school-level approval, send the proposal form with a cover letter to the Office of 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

Step 3

Undergraduate Affairs Committee (UAC)

After the senior associate vice chancellor for academic affairs approves the proposal, the Office of Academic Affairs will forward the proposal 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. If approved by the chief academic officer, the proposal will be entered into the APPEAR system by the Office of Academic Affairs.

Step 6
Unit and campus notifications

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