Biological Sciences Undergraduate Advising

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic the Bio Advising Office is closed for in-person advising.  Our academic services will continue to be provided remotely (via Skype for Business, Zoom, email, and/or phone). 


The Department of Biological Sciences' Advising Office has five biology advisors who work to support and enrich the academic experience of students by helping with curricular decisions, as well as providing information and guidance on extracurricular options, career paths, and post-graduate plans. The Biological Sciences Undergraduate Advising Office is open to any student (not just our majors) with questions regarding Biology classes, majors, and careers.
