Transfer Students

Transferring to the Biology program can be a simple, easy process with a little preparation.  To better assist you, we’ve provided the following transfer guides for your use.  The best way to stay on a four year undergraduate plan is to take ALL the science courses listed in the guide (Biology, Chemistry, Physics) as well as math through Calculus at your community college prior to transferring to Lewis University.  Students should not focus solely on the “gen ed” curriculum at the community college as failure to complete a core set of science courses is sure to extend the undergraduate experience.  If you are transferring from a four year program, a similar academic transcript is necessary to complete the degree in the traditional four year period.  Please keep in mind the 2.75 GPA pre-requisite (necessary to declare the Biology major at Lewis University) as you are completing the courses.
