Information

Departmental permission is not required to enroll in this minor.

New requirements for the Horticulture Minor were adopted in December 2014.

Previously, it was announced that only students who had declared a HORT Minor prior to Spring Semester 2015 would be permitted to follow the old minor requirements. All others would follow the new plan.

This policy is now changed.

The NEW policy is: Any student declaring the HORT Minor prior to Fall Semester 2015 will be permitted to follow the old minor requirements OR the new plan. All others declaring the HORT Minor after August 23, 2015, will follow the new plan.
