How Credits Count: Biological Sciences

For Biology students:

  • Up to six credits of 3XXX-4XXX level VIP coursework can be counted towards Biology breadth electives (as detailed in the student handbook for BIOL 4695, 4697, 4699), provided that the VIP course(s) involves at least one faculty member or adjunct faculty member from the School of Biological Sciences.

  • VIP classes without a Biology faculty member may be approved for Biology elective credit upon review by the School's Undergraduate Committee.

  • Additional VIP credits beyond six are free electives.


Please check with your BioSci academic advisor if you have any questions on how credits count.
