How to Enroll in the E-SHIP Minor
Students interested in the E-SHIP minor must meet three important qualifications to be fully enrolled:
- Declare a major field of study. (Most students are in-major when they are in their 4th semester or higher.)
- Complete ENGR310 - Entrepreneurial Leadership. After taking this "gateway" course into the minor, you'll know if E-SHIP is right for you.
- Submit the application for entry into the minor. Many students complete this form with the E-SHIP Minor Coordinator, Dr. Sadan Kulturel, to plan courses and establish a timetable for completing the degree. The application can be completed at any time.
