Repeating a course

A biology course may be taken only twice, regardless of the grade earned in the first enrolment. The Department Chair, or delegate, will decide on exceptions to this rule, usually on the basis of documented evidence of upgraded prerequisites.

Laboratory Requirements

For any biology course that contains a laboratory, students must pass the laboratory portion of the course in order to obtain credit for the course.

Students repeating a biology course with a laboratory component will be required to participate in both the lecture and the laboratory of the course, whether or not they have previously passed the laboratory or lecture component.

Note

Not all 2300 and 2400 level courses are offered every semester. Most 2400 level courses do not have a 2300 level prerequisite. Check the prerequisite information included in each course description.

The following courses are restricted to students participating in specific Field Studies Programs: BIOL 1185, BIOL 1395, BIOL 2285, BIOL 2286, BIOL 2319, BIOL 2322 and BIOL 2326.
