Undergraduate Academic Advising
All declared biology majors have at least two advisors:
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.
