Biology Transfer Curriculum

Recommended AS Transfer Curriculum for Biology

This AS curriculum is only a suggested transfer program and might not be appropriate for every student. Some four-year institutions accept more than 62 credit hours in transfer to fulfill requirements in Biology. Consult the Transfer Center for help in selecting courses.

Students who intend to enter the health professions (pre-med, pre-vet, pre-dentistry, or med-tech) are advised to follow the recommended biology curriculum.

Faculty are available during scheduled office hours to advise students about their program and career opportunities. Peruse some of the offerings in the Life Sciences and Physical Education Department.

All full-time transfer students are required to take OCS 121.
