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 a 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.
