In the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS), only one course may overlap between a major and a minor or between two minors.

Courses for the minor and/or its pre/co-requisites that are cross-listed in the catalog or schedule of courses under another course prefix may be taken under that other prefix and still count for these requirements.

With the approval of the chair/director, courses that applied to the minor in previous years but have since been deactivated may be applied to this year’s minor requirements if they are reactivated.

For a Bachelor of Arts degree, no more than 45 credits in courses with the same departmental prefix may be used toward completion of the 120 credits required for graduation. For a Bachelor of Science degree, the maximum is 50 credits.

At least half of the credits used to complete minor requirements must be taken at the University of Vermont.
