Wagner Minor Requirements


Grade Requirement

Credit toward the minors is not given for courses completed with a grade of less than C, or for courses taken on a pass/fail basis. 

Spring 2020 Exception

In light of the dislocations caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and the new CAS policy on pass/fail grading, Wagner Undergraduate Studies will accept up to two courses taken pass/fail in Spring 2020 to count for minor credit. It is up to students to decide if they wish to avail themselves of this option. Instructors will continue to compute grades for all students in all courses but a student’s transcript will show only Pass or Fail for classes where that student has chosen the Pass/Fail option.

As a result of the pandemic and the dislocations it has caused to students and instructors, a grade of D, which is sufficient for a pass, will also be sufficient for successful completion of a required course this semester for the major or any of our minors..

In line with CAS policy, students wishing to choose the Pass/Fail option can do so until May 12. They can withdraw from any course until the same date. You can request pass/fail or withdrawal following the policies of your home school.

CAS Residency

CAS students are allowed to take 16 credits in non-liberal arts courses in the other schools of the University; any Wagner courses taken toward the minors count against those 16 credits. Students with a good academic reason for going over the 16-point limit must petition the Office of Academic Standards (Silver 909, 212.998.8140) for permission to take additional credits outside of the College.

In addition, no Wagner courses can count toward the 64 credits that internal or external transfer students to the College are required to complete in CAS (-UA) courses.

Double Counting Courses

Students can count one course in a minor towards the requirements of another major or minor. Students intending to double count any courses would also need to contact the other major or minor’s department to ask if, and to what extent, that department permits overlapping courses.

Minor Completion Memo

If courses that count toward the minor are not appearing on your Degree Progress Report, please contact wagner.undergraduate@nyu.edu after you’ve completed the minor with the following information:

  • Name

  • Minor

  • N Number

  • List of courses (course number and title) that you took that count toward the minor

We will then submit a minor completion memo to the registrar.


Student Organizations

Minor students are encouraged to participate in Wagner Student Organizations overseen by the Wagner Student Association for graduate students.
