BIOLOGY/MINOR

Minor Credit Hours: 35

A grade of C or better must be earned in a prerequisite course in order to advance to the next course in the sequence.

Biology majors and minors may take a Biology class only two times. If a student has not achieved a minimum of a C after the second attempt, the student may not repeat the class.

The Biology Department will award 3 hours of credit for our general education class 02-100 (Introduction to Biology) when students have received a score of 4 or 5 on AP tests. We do not award any credit for major classes based on AP scores.

To be admitted to the minor in Biology, the applicant needs either a cumulative GPA of 2.75 for matriculated students or a composite ACT score of 21 for first-year students.  Minors need not take Calculus I to be admitted to the minor.
