Applied Language Studies


Students may declare the minor after they have completed at least three approved Applied Language Studies minor courses including the core course, UGIS 120, and no later than the term before their Expected Graduation Term (EGT) as posted in the “My Academic” tab in CalCentral. Please review the approved course list prior to submitting a declaration form.

Applied Language Studies Minor Declaration Form

Your minor declaration submission will be processed in approximately 3-5 business days. Business days are Monday-Friday and do not include weekends or holidays. Please check your CalCentral around that time to check if the minor has been added to your records. If it has been longer than 5 business days and you do not see the minor on CalCentral, please follow up with Michelle Herrera, the Applied Language Studies Minor Coordinator, at
