## Prerequisites

- Doctoral student in an Ohio State graduate program
- Good academic standing with the university and the primary academic program

## Requirements

- Complete
**15 credit hours**of approved graduate-level mathematics courses, including a minimum of**4 courses.**All courses must be at the 5000-level or higher. - All courses must be passed with a
**grade of B or higher**(or S for courses graded S/U). - Only 3 credit hours of S/U graded courses may be counted toward the minor.
- At least 9 credit hours of coursework must be from letter-graded mathematics courses at the 5000 or 6000-level.

## Application Procedure

Current doctoral students interested in adding the minor in mathematics to their degree plan should first contact the **Graduate Minor Chair**, Dr. Janet Best, and make an appointment to discuss their study plan. Once agreed upon, the study plan should be submitted as part of the *Minors & Interdisciplinary Specializations* form on GradForms. When the Grad Minor Chair and the Graduate School have both approved the form, the minor will be added to the student's degree plan.
