Minor Declaration and Minor Evaluation

In order to increase the likelihood of successfully completing the sociology minor, it is recommended that students minoring in sociology take applicable courses as soon as possible when there is space available, rather than waiting to take several courses in the last quarter(s) of study.  Also, there is more course availability during Summer Session, so minors may want to consider utilizing the summer quarters to fulfill minor requirements. A registration waiting period is not in place for non-majors during summer quarter registration.
