Minors in "Majors Only" Courses

Usually classes that are restricted to "majors only" open to everyone during Period II Registration. Although we can not promise that a minor will be able to enroll to any specific class prior to Period II, the adviser is sometimes able to override the restriction on a case-by-case basis for students who have declared the minor.
