ShqipSrpski

At RIT Kosovo (A.U.K), a minor is defined as a thematically related set of courses consisting of no fewer than 15 semester credit hours taken from a discipline or an interdisciplinary area distinct from the student’s primary program of study. Completion of a minor is optional and results in a formal designation on a student’s academic transcript upon graduation. In order to complete a minor the student must take two additional courses from the chosen Immersion discipline. If a student choses to complete one of the four minors, it is necessary to fill out a Minor Authorization form 

Note: If the student does not complete and submit the form to Academic Affairs Office the student will not be certified for the minor and the minor will not be listed in the student’s official record
