We study slant submanifolds of a cosymplectic manifold. It is shown that a totally umbilical slant submanifold 𝑀 of a cosymplectic manifold 𝑀 is either an anti-invariant submanifold or a 1−dimensional submanifold. We show that every totally umbilical proper slant submanifold of a cosymplectic manifold is totally geodesic.
