Declaring a minor

Meeting with a CJUS academic advisor is not always required when you declare a minor. But you may want to drop by anyway—the advisor can help you coordinate all of the requirements for your degree.

When declaring a minor in Criminal Justice, the first step is to email a CJUS academic advisor with your name and student ID#. You will receive a follow up email confirming the courses that count towards your minor and any that you still need to take.

Tracking your academic progress

Your advisor can review your Academic Advisement Report (AAR). Schedule an advising appointment or come to walk-in hours if you have questions about your progress towards your CJUS major, minor, or certificate, and or COLL BA degree requirements (if applicable).
