Satisfactory Completion of the ETS Major Field Test

If a student does not successfully complete a biology course after two attempts (i.e., he/she receives a D, F, W, or WF), the student will be limited to specific registration times for any subsequent attempts. Any student meeting these criteria will not be allowed to register for the course until the last day of late registration. Appeals may be made to the Chair of the Department of Biology in hardship cases.

Students who declare a major in Ecology will be classified as Pre-Ecology majors until they complete MATH 1113 and BIOL 1108 with grades of C or better. Upon successful completion of these requirements, a student will be classified as an Ecology major.
