All courses must be approved by an advisor in the Department of Psychology and Family Science . A grade of C or higher is required in all courses taken for the minor. Students taking advanced courses must complete required prerequisites with a grade of C or above. Students may repeat a maximum of one course in which a grade lower than a C was earned. Students who fail to earn a grade of C in the repeated course or in any subsequent required course will be dropped from the program. A WF in any course is counted as a failure of that course. Students will have the right to appeal a negative decision.
