A minimum of 20 hours of credit is required of all students seeking the Nutrition minor. Students must earn at least a 2.0 in each course to receive credit for the minor.

This minor is open to all students regardless of major. Students may use (i.e., “double count”) only two courses to fulfill requirements for both the minor and their major.
