Dropping the Minor
If you declare the statistics minor and then later decide you don’t want to finish it, you should request to officially “drop” the minor using a form on this page: https://registrar.calpoly.edu/registrar_forms (The form itself is toward the bottom of the page). Dropping a minor that you won't be pursuing will expedite your degree checkout process upon graduation and help avoid delays in obtaining your diploma.
