Things You Need to Know
★ Students are considered “Entry-Level” in biology until the following courses are completed with grades of at least C-:
- semester 1 - M 408C or M 408N, CH 301 and BIO 311C
- semester 2 - CH 302 & BIO 311D
- semester 3 - BIO 325 This course is a prerequisite for all upper division BIO courses
★ To change to “entry-level biology” or to add it as a second major, call 471-4536 to set up an appointment with a TrAC advisor in W.C. Hogg 1.106. If you are in another college, you will need to change to, or add, “Natural Sciences”
★ Changing your major as a junior or senior may delay your graduation plans. Discuss your options with an advisor before declaring the major. Depending on your career goals, you may opt to complete a minor in biology instead (minimum of 12 hours - at least 6 of which are upper division).
★ Some BIO courses and labs are restricted to students in specific BIO options. (See course lists on the BSAC website.) Restrictions and enforced prerequisites help eligible students get the courses they need.
★ Register as best you can while “entry-level”. Your advisor can suggest options so you stay on track for graduation. Pay your tuition bill on time so you can adjust your schedule during adds/drops.
★ Due to the time commitment of the workload, no more than 9 – 10 hours of science coursework with no more than 2 labs per semester are recommended.
