A grade of “C” or higher is mandatory for courses counting towards minor. A grade of “C-” in any of the minor courses is not adequate to fulfill the minor.

Minor courses must be taken at the Purdue West Lafayette campus. The only exceptions are as follows:

  1. One equivalent transfer course from another university can be used if it is deemed acceptable by the department offering the course.

  2. One equivalent Purdue substitution may be used if it is deemed equivalent to an approved minor course.

(No more than one substitution from either of the above two categories is acceptable.)


The student is ultimately responsible for knowing and completing all degree requirements.

The myPurduePlan powered by DegreeWorks is the knowledge source for specific requirements and completion.
