Adding the Human Services minor is easy!
- Go to the Students Online section of MyLC, and add the minor.
- Go to the advisor menu and add Dr. Sharon Foreman as an advisor. Dr. Foreman is the minor advisor for all Human Services students. Don’t worry, your other advisor(s) will still be listed.
As stated in the 2013-14 LC Undergraduate Catalog, page 20, in the Minor Programs section: “Credit hours used to satisfy major requirements may also be used to satisfy up to 50 percent of minor requirements. No courses will apply toward two different minor programs. Courses counted in the minor may not be taken on a pass/fail basis. A student must have a minimum quality point average of 2.00 for minor courses taken at University of Lynchburg in the minor area and for all courses that apply to the minor. A minimum of 50 percent of the hours applicable to the minor must be earned at University of Lynchburg.”
Get help from your major and minor advisors to make sure you are meeting these requirements.
