1 The math course that a student will take is determined by a placement test. There are five levels of math that one may enter. Placement into a course lower than Math 110 will delay this schedule, and placement into a higher course than Math 110 will accelerate it.

2 During these semesters students should take additional courses in preparation for biology career, medical school, veterinary, or graduate school. Your biology faculty advisor can help you with the selection of these courses.

3 Courses offered fall term only.

4 Courses offered winter term only.
