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 Students must take a minimum of two courses from the list including Ag 235, Ag 301, Bio 315, Bio 324, Bio 334, or Bio 470.

4 These upper division elective courses may be in biology, recommended electives for a career in biology, or other electives.

5 Bio 376 may be taken in the summer following the junior year if Bio 302 is taken in the fall of the junior year. Students should consult with their faculty advisor about this possibility.

6 Courses offered fall term only.
