Most departments in FAS offer minors which require the completion of a number of courses, a minimum of 15 credits, before graduation. Students who opt for a minor must do so while working towards their undergraduate degree. The student must attain an average of at least 2.2 (70) or more in the courses taken for the minor. Once the course requirements are fulfilled, the student should fill and submit an online "Completion of minor" request via the Online Petitions and Forms System (OPFS), within the set deadline (before the graduation date). The minor will be recognized by the Registrar only on the student’s transcript. For more information on minors, the student may check the AUB Undergraduate Catalogue, “Minor” section under “General University Academic Information”, and the “Faculty of Arts and Sciences General Section”. For more information on and course pre-requisites or co-requisites, the student may check the course descriptions in the relative department sections of the AUB Undergraduate Catalogue.
