List of Approved Outside Minors

Students in the College may complete and have listed on their transcripts up to three minors, including specified minors on the below list from other IU schools. Courses from outside the College, except where indicated otherwise, do not count as part of the 100 "inside" credit hours required for graduation. However, College students can count up to 20 credit hours from outside of the College toward the 120 credit hours required for graduation. For information about "outside minors," students should contact the relevant school, the College of Arts and Sciences Recorder’s Office (Owen Hall 003), and the academic advisor(s) for their major(s).
