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 Cell and Molecular Biology will be classified as Pre-Cell and Molecular Biology 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 a Cell and Molecular Biology major.
