All courses required in the major must be completed with a "C-" or better in order to satisfy the major. If a student places into MATH 156, then they only need to complete MATH 156 to fulfill the math requirement. If a student places into MATH 207, then they have completed the Math requirement for this major. If MATH 221 is required, it must still be taken.  Incoming students need to place into MATH 104 in order to enroll in BIO 101 and MATH 155 to enroll in CHEM 101.

Recommended for some graduate programs: PHYS 102 & 102L.

During BIO 1XX Introductory Research Immersion, students will work with a biology faculty member to design an individualized plan for their biology electives.  This plan must be signed off by both student and biology faculty member.  Changes to the plan must be approved by the student's biology content advisor.
