Personal Training (Minor and Professional Certificate)

MINOR REQUIREMENTS

  • Minor Requirements:

    • At least 33 percent of the credit hours required for the minor must be in courses numbered 300 or above.
    • 2.00 cumulative GPA or higher in the minor is required
    • The number of minors a student may receive at Colorado Mesa University shall not exceed two.
    • A student must follow the CMU graduation requirements either from 1) the program sheet for the major in effect at the time the student officially declares a major; or 2) a program sheet for the major approved for a year subsequent to the year during which the student officially declares the major and is approved for the student by the department head. Because a program may have requirements specific to the degree, the student should check with the faculty advisor for additional criteria.  It is the student’s responsibility to be aware of, and follow, all requirements for the degree being pursued.  Any exceptions or substitutions must be approved by the student’s faculty advisor and Department Head.
