You are highly encouraged to declare your proposed minor a year before graduation because it will be more difficult to get it added to your transcript as graduation approaches. Declaring a minor with a time period shorter than a year before graduation will still be possible, however, we recommend not waiting until the last minute. For those who have any questions about the declaration process or if anyone is experiencing difficulty with declaring this minor please get in touch with the advisor for the Maritime Business Administration Department.
