Undergraduate advisement is designed to facilitate the progress of undergraduate students who are majoring in biology. Its primary mission is to ensure that you meet the requirements for a bachelor's degree (B.S. or B.A.) in Biology in a timely manner. In addition to approving your declaration of Biology as your major and conducting a degree check when you've completed 80 credit hours of course work, an important service provided by the A&S advisement team is helping you choose a course of study that will enable you to achieve your career goals.

There are a number of reasons for meeting with a Biology Department advisor. Select your reason for wishing to see an advisor from the choices below, and you will be given a list of steps that you must complete before you visit your advisor:

Your reason for meeting with an advisor:

  1. I want to get credit for biology courses taken elsewhere.
  2. I want to define my course of study.
  3. Other.

Once you have the requisite information and completed forms, check the Advisors' Daily Schedule or contact an advisor to arrange for a meeting.
