Closed Class permits:

If a biology class is closed, you may be able to get a permit to the class by speaking with the professor. This depends on the course. You may pick up a green closed class card in room B207 and take it to the professor.

Course offerings:

Upper level electives are not always taught every semester. The best way to find out for sure when upper level electives are going to be offered, is to check with the professor that normally teaches the course.

1V90 and 3V90 Research experiences:

Undergraduates are encouraged to explore their research interests. One of the best ways to find a lab group or project is to first review the faculty interests on the web page and then make an appointment to visit with a professor working in an area that interests you.

Internship and Summer Research Policy:

The Department of Biology does not issue course credit for work completed during summer internships or research programs. The BIO 3V90 course option is limited to research conducted at Baylor and under the supervision of departmental faculty.
