CAS Students - Minor Declaration Instructions
To declare the minor, CAS students should email firstname.lastname@example.org (include your N Number), call (212)998-7920 or stop by the Academic Affairs Office at 6 Washington Place (Meyer Building), Room 423 upon completing Introduction to Psychology (PSYCH-UA 1) with a grade of C or better.
Non-CAS Students - Minor Declaration Instructions
Non-CAS students must declare the minor through the "Application for Cross-School Minor" form found on the "Academics" tab in Albert. The "host school" for the minor is CAS, and the "home school" is the school in which you are matriculated as a full-time student. The minor declaration request will be processed by your home school so you should speak to your advisor if you have any trouble with this process.
