Undergraduate Minor in Student Affairs in Higher Education


The undergraduate minor in Student Affairs in Higher Education (SAHE) is designed to prepare students interested in working in a helping profession, learning about college students and how to best work with them, and gaining knowledge and experience to open up career options in student affairs and higher education administration.
To earn the minor, students must complete 18 credit hours (12 credit hours of required courses and 6 credit hours of electives). Students must have a minimum GPA of 2.0 to earn the minor and all courses must have a grade of C or better.
Schedule time with your academic advisor to officially declare your SAHE minor. The Academic Advising Department updates the Department of Counseling and Human Services with newly declared minors. Academic Advising is located in Main Hall Room 208 (lobby). Phone: (719) 255-3260.
Please contact the SAHE Coordinator within the Department of Leadership, Research, and Foundations for any questions about the SAHE minor. Call 719-255-4996 or education@uccs.edu to set up an appointment.
