Academic Advising

PREREQUISITE CHANGE

Please Note: Students entering second year biology courses in Fall 2017 or Winter 2018 are currently required to have a minimum grade of C+ (65%) in introductory biology (BIOL 1010/11/20/21) or the biology portion of SCIE 1505 (DISP). Effective Fall 2018, this prerequisite will change to C (60%).

Students who have already earned a final grade of C in BIOL 1010/11/20/21 or the biology portion of SCIE 1505 may be eligible for a prerequisite override to take second year biology courses in Fall 2017 and Winter 2018. Please contact a biology advisor immediately to discuss your options.
