Frequently Asked Questions

How long does the application process take?

Applications are reviewed on a monthly basis. Once accepted, you must return the acceptance letter to the Department of Exercise and Nutrition Sciences. Shortly thereafter, you will officially be accepted into the minor and will be updated in HUB (UB’s student information and registration system). Please allow for time for this process when planning for class registration.

Do I need to be in an undergraduate program to enroll in the health and wellness minor?

Yes, you need to be a matriculated undergraduate student in a major to apply and be accepted to the minor.

Can I take courses in the minor without being accepted to the minor?

Yes, but there are limited seats in the courses open to all students. Most seats are saved for students in the minor. We recommend that you apply and wait for acceptance to the minor before beginning the coursework.
