  2. Up to two lower division POLI courses can be used for the Political Science minor if a student would like to do so, form the following: POLI 10(D), POLI 11(D), POLI 12(D), POLI 13(D), and POLI 30(D). 
  3. All courses taken toward the minor must be taken for a letter grade and a grade of C- or better must be earned. The only exceptions to this are the following courses in which a P/NP grading option is the only option: POLI 198 RA and POLI 199. For these courses, a student must earn a "Pass" grade.
