Completing the Education Minor

All Education Minor students must submit two online completion forms for the minor (after submitting the application form):

  • the Verification of Completion form
  • the Exit Survey

In addition, students with specific majors and/or other minors will have to download and submit an overlap form electronically - see below.

Information on all three completion items is listed below.

The Minor will NOT be listed on your diploma. Students who complete the requirements for the Education Minor will receive an official completion letter via email. In addition, the Education Minor will be listed on your transcript.


(Complete this form only AFTER submitting your application to the Minor)

This form, which is completed online, lists the courses and fieldwork you have completed for the Minor, and is your official notification that you intend to complete the Education Minor. You do not need to submit a transcript. When you are ready to complete this form, you should have access to your transcript to make sure you give accurate information about which courses you completed and want to use for the Minor. The Minor Advisor will have access to and will check the information you have entered after submission.

If you are completing your Minor requirements in the same semester in which you are graduating, please submit the Verification form before the end of your last semester.

Education Minor students are requested to submit an Education Minor Exit Survey. This survey gives the Undergraduate Programs Committee, in the Graduate School of Education, valuable feedback on various aspects of the Minor, enabling an attractive program to continue to be offered to our students. Candid responses are greatly appreciated. Responses will be compiled each semester for review.

The Minor Advisor is automatically notified once you have completed the survey. Questions about the survey should be directed to the Minor Advisor.
