During the 2018-19 academic year, we will be transitioning to a longer application processing timeline to be able to give accepted students more time to prepare to enroll in classes for the minor. From now on, applicants during fall quarter 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 fall quarter application deadline is Friday, October 26. 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.
