Students who have questions about the eligibility requirements (listed below) AFTER attending an information session about applying for the minor are encouraged to submit them to the minor student advisor, Janel Munguia, through UCLA Message Center.

Students not accepted into the minor with their first application are now permitted to apply a second time, in the quarter following the quarter their first application was denied (i.e. spring 2023 applicants denied in fall 2023 are eligible to submit a second application in winter 2024 and not before), provided they will have sufficient time to complete the minor requirements before their projected term of degree candidacy.

  5. Provide a LinkedIn profile URL and a pdf of the LinkedIn profile.
  6. Complete a 500-word or less application essay describing how the minor enhances their major and career goals.

 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. (Would you submit a resume to a prospective employer indicating that you have already held the same position at the company to which you are applying?)
