Adding a Minor or Double Major in CLA

At this time, we are NOT accepting requests from incoming students to add a Minor or Double Major. Students may discuss their options with an advisor during the Fall 2023 semester.

To add an additional degree objective (Minor or 2nd Major) you must meet ALL of the following criteria:

  • Have a minimum 2.5 GPA in all three GPAs: Overall, CSULB, and Major
  • Be fully declared in your major (no pre-majors)
  • Be able to complete all degree requirements within expected graduation term

In the meantime, we encourage you to explore our CLA Major & Minor Checklists!
