Resources for Biology Program Faculty and Staff

Advising Biology Students

If you are a Biology faculty advisor, the "Current Students" page is one of your best friends.  It contains links to Biology Program requirements, links to university and college general education information, worksheets you can use together with your advisees to plan out their degree program, and commonly used forms (such as the change of major form).  You may also find our page about the registration process helpful to reference, along with other sub-pages in that "Current Students" area.  We hope to provide some more resources about advising as we further develop the website.
