Additional information


Generally, application to OU STEP requires a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0 in courses in the major and the minor. To progress into the internship year, students admitted to the OU STEP must maintain a minimum GPA of 3.00 in both their major and minor coursework, with no single course grade below 2.0.

Second undergraduate degree candidates completing the minor may be required to take additional courses at Oakland University beyond the stated minimums.

Please note: STEP minors in political science who have transferred a 3-credit American Government course must complete either PS 3105 - Congress and the Legislative Process  or PS 3210 - Women and Politics . Either of these courses also can serve to meet part of the 24 credits of requirements noted above. Students must consult with the secondary education minor adviser in the department.
