  1. All requirements for the option or minor, must be fulfilled. (Refer to Regulations Governing Minors.)
  2. The student must achieve a cumulative GPA of at least 4.5 on all courses of the minor subject. If an option or minor requires a higher GPA, that GPA applies.
  3. An honours student may receive designation for only one option other than the Administration, Children's Education and Development Option (Brantford only), Co-operative Education and Professional Experience Program Options.
  4. An honours student may receive designation for only one of the Co-operative Education and Professional Experience Program Options.
