Advising News

To declare a track, you must "change" your major (even if already BIO) and then use the drop-down list to declare a track.  Please do not declare a pre-professional program (such as pre-med, pre-pharmacy,...) though if you want that added ask your advisor to send an email to the registrar to have that designation added.  A similar procedure is used to Add A Minor or Change Majors.

To Add A Minor, Change Majors, Apply for Option to Repeat a course and other such documents go to Student Forms from the Office of the Registrar.


Advising information including degree/minor checklists, program certiification forms and graduation paperwork can be found in the Biology Majors/Advising Blackboard site.  Also, the 2016 Graduation Seminar video can be found on Blackboard in Biology Majors/Tegrity/GraduationSeminar link.
