Academic Advising


Undergraduate Academic Advising

All declared biology majors have at least two advisors:

1)    Biology Major Advisor:

Biology Advisors can assist you with class selection, planning a balanced course schedule, degree progression analysis and graduation requirements, and career counseling. Meeting with your biology major advisor once a year is recommended. However, you may see them more often if you have specific questions or concerns. The beginning and end of each semester is the busiest, so plan ahead.  The Degree Audit is available in UCDAccess to track your degree progress. If you see problems with the biology portion of your audit, contact the Biology Advisors below​ during their walk in office hours.

There are two Biology Advisors:​ 

a)     Dr. Cheri Jones will assist Biology Minors and Majors who do not have science  transfer credits. She will also see students on academic probation. Dr. Jones cannot assist with registration problems due to prerequisites or transfer course evaluations.

b)    Dr. Kim Regier will assist students with biology transfer credits. Registration problems due to prerequisites: If you have completed the prerequisite courses, please email me your student number, the class for which you are attempting to register. If you are a non-degree seeking student, I will also need a copy of your unofficial transcript showing the completed prerequisite courses.

Biology transfer course evaluations: Please send an email with the your student number, the institution name, the course number and the year you took the course. Transfer courses that are not biology must be evaluated by the appropriate department.

2)    A CLAS Academic Advisor​ will help handle your general educational issues such as core curriculum advising, transfer credits evaluation for Core Curriculum, academic warning and probation.

3)    You may also choose to talk with one of the Department's Health Professions Advisors​

4)    You may also wish to discuss career plans with a biology faculty member in the field you are interested in. Please contact faculty directly for mentoring and career counseling.
