To enter the Entrepreneurship minor, students must (1) have an overall grade-point average of 3.0 or better and (2) submit an application supporting their interest in pursuing the minor. For the 2018-19 academic year ONLY, 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. Applications will therefore be accepted only in Fall Quarter, 2018, and Spring Quarter, 2019, and will again be accepted in the Fall, Winter, and Spring Quarters for the 2019-20 academic year. To help plan the course schedule and internship/field experience, students are expected to work closely with the academic adviser. Applications are available on-line at and must be submitted according to the requirements listed on the “Apply to the Minor” page of this website. PLEASE NOTE: This minor is open to students in the Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science effective fall quarter, 2018.
