Frequently Asked Questions

I have not taken any college science classes. Which biology classes can I take to fulfill the lab science distribution requirement?

Go to this link: Advising for non-science majors.

Is high school chemistry equivalent to CHEM& 121 or CHEM& 141? Will high school chemistry fulfill the chemistry prerequisite for BIOL& 211?

No. You will need a working knowledge of introductory college chemistry to be successful in BIOL& 211.

Can I take CHEM& 141 and BIOL& 211 at the same time?

No. CHEM& 141 is a prerequisite for BIOL& 211. Most students who will take both CHEM& 141 and BIOL& 211 will eventually take the Organic Chemistry series as well as the biology series. It is best to take the General Chemistry series (CHEM& 141-143) and Math and other classes one year, and the Organic Chemistry series (CHEM& 241-243) and the Biology series (CHEM& 211-213) the following year.
