For the 2019-2020 academic year, quarterly application deadlines for the minor will fall during Week 7, with acceptance notifications expected during Week 3 of the following quarter. Therefore, fall quarter applicants will be informed of acceptance in time to enroll in spring quarter classes, winter applicants will be informed of acceptance in time to enroll in fall quarter classes, and spring applicants will now be notified of acceptance in time to enroll in winter quarter classes.

The winter quarter application deadline is Friday, February 21, 2020. Prospective applicants should attend an Entrepreneurship Minor information session on one of the following dates before submitting an application. Anyone interested in the minor is welcome to attend; RSVPs are not necessary. Because students are only afforded ONE opportunity to apply for the minor, it is important to attend an information session to learn when to apply and what makes a strong application.

 Entrepreneurship Minor application

Please DO NOT submit multiple applications. Only COMPLETE applications will be considered. It is unacceptable to submit an application or resume that indicates you have already been accepted into the Minor in Entrepreneurship.
