The minor is a pattern of courses similar to the major, but less comprehensive.  The number of units required varies with each minor.  A listing of all minors may be found in the Bulletin of Courses.  Requirements are listed in each department's section of the catalog.

A minor must be declared (or dropped) on the Minor request form.  A processing fee of $4.00 per minor is charged.  If the requested minor is in the same department as the major, the department chair's signature will be required on the form as approval to pursue this minor.  

All minors require a minimum 2.00 grade point average and a minimum of 12 units completed towards the minor, through regular enrollment at CSUSB.  However, some minors require a higher minimum. 

Minors can only be granted for the same term in which the student graduates with an undergraduate degree. 

The minor requirements will appear on your PAWS approximately two weeks after the form has been submitted.  An email notification will be sent to your CSUSB email account once your PAWS is ready for viewing.

PAWS (Program Advising Worksheet for Students)

What is PAWS?

PAWS is an automated credit summary, for undergraduate degrees, that provides students with a listing of all coursework required for graduation from CSUSB. It allows students to map out their course selection at any point in their academic career by comparing the classes they have taken or are now taking to those they will need to take in order to complete their undergraduate degree program. Head over to MyCoyote to see your PAWS.

Please Note: New Students will need to wait for the email notification in order to view an official PAWS report.

PAWS is available daily from 6:00am to 4:00am

For questions regarding your PAWS or if you're experiencing trouble accessing the PAWS program, please email us at pawshelp@csusb.edu.
