Students admitted to bachelor’s degrees who (i) have a home major and (ii) have not been granted any extra credit units above the maximum credit limit permitted by the University are eligible to apply for declaring a minor during the specified application periods. Please note that students admitted with an undeclared major are not eligible to declare a minor until they are allocated a home major.
Students who have previously declared a minor can submit a request to drop the minor, if they so wish, during the specified periods for add/drop of minors.
There are two rounds for adding/dropping minors in each academic year, and the periods for 2017/18 are as follows:
|Round||Period for add/drop of minors||Announcement of Results (for adding minors)||Effective term for ADD of minors||Effective term for DROP of minors|
|1||1 - 21 November 2017||From 6 December 2017||Semester B 2017/18||Semester A 2017/18|
|2||3 - 24 April 2018||From 8 May 2018||Semester A 2018/19||Semester B 2017/18|
Note: Requests for add/drop of minors must be submitted by midnight of the deadlines (at 23:59) and late requests submitted after the specified deadlines will not be accepted. Students can view the results of their requests for adding minors in AIMS, and no separate emails will be issued to students announcing the results.
