Current ASU undergraduate students may pursue a minor and have it recognized on their ASU transcript at graduation. Students interested in pursuing a minor should consult their academic advisor to declare the minor and to ensure that an appropriate set of courses is taken. Minor requirements appear on the degree audit once the minor is added. Certain major and minor combinations may be deemed inappropriate by the college or department of either the major program or the minor. Courses taken for the minor may not count toward both the major and the minor. Students should contact their academic advisor for more information.

What are Accelerated Degrees?
ASU students can accelerate their studies by earning a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in as little as five years, for some programs, or by earning a bachelor’s degree in 2.5 or 3 years.

Accelerated bachelors-masters degrees are designed to give high-achieving undergraduate students the opportunity to combine advanced undergraduate coursework with graduate coursework to accelerate graduate degree completion. These programs, featuring the same high-quality curriculum taught by our world-renowned faculty, allow students to obtain both a bachelor's and master's degree in as little as five years.

An accelerated bachelor’s degree allows students to choose either a 2.5- or a 3-year path while participating in the same high-quality educational experience if they were pursuing the four-year option. Students can opt to fast track their studies after acceptance into a participating program by connecting with their academic advisor.
What are Concurrent Programs?
Students pursuing concurrent degrees earn two distinct degrees and receive two diplomas. ASU offers students two ways to earn concurrent degrees: by choosing a predetermined combination or creating their own combination. Predetermined combinations have a single admissions application and one easy to follow major map. To add a concurrent degree to your existing degree, work with your academic advisor. Either way, concurrent degrees allow students to pursue their own personal or professional interests.
What are Joint Programs?
Joint programs, or jointly conferred degrees, are offered by more than one college and provide opportunities for students to take advantage of the academic strengths of two academic units. Upon graduation, students are awarded one degree and one diploma conferred by two colleges.

What constitutes a New Program?
ASU adds new programs to Degree Search frequently. Come back often and look for the “New Programs” option.
What are Online Programs?
ASU Online offers programs in an entirely online format with multiple enrollment sessions throughout the year. See http://asuonline.asu.edu/ for more information.
What is the Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE)?
