Do you must complete Minors requirements by the time you graduate?

I applied two minors. It happens that I was accepted by both minors. Does it mean I MUST complete them in order to get graduated?

    so you can graduate first then come back to finish your minors?

    No, you can't graduate then pick up 2 minors. Are you a senior or a junior?

    I have two more years to go. I am unsure if I can finish two minors in time.

    Do you need the two minors? It seems excessive tbh

    No. When you file the paperwork to graduate at the end of a particular quarter, you are done. If you want to finish your minor(s) and are under the unit cap, don't file the paperwork.

    I noticed the minors are on my degree progress report already. (1) will get something in my diploma about my minors if I finish them (2) so there is an option for me to decide when I want to graduate if I have not finished my minors by the time I suppose to get out? I can file the paper to not continue my minors, or I can choose not to file the paperwork in order to remain in UCLA to finish my minors?

    re (2) - what you said is my understanding, but I'm not a UCLA administrator. You should confirm this with a UCLA counselor.
