How much extra is a minor?
Most undergraduate students pay by credit for 1-12 credits and then from 12-18 credits they all cost the same. Adding a minor can cost you more money because you might have to take additional classes, however, a lot of people are able to finish their degree in 4 years and do not pay extra for the minor.
Do minors cost more money?
At most schools, not usually. In the worst cases, you might have another semester or so of classes to take (which will extend the amount of time there and therefore money), but the minor itself is usually not more than the cost of extra classes/time.
What is the point of having a minor in college?

While majors require a lot of focus, attention, and time during college, minors are much less demanding as they often consist of ten courses or fewer.
Is a minor even worth it?
