Advising Information Regarding Biology

When planning your class schedule for the fall or in developing your two-year plan for classes while you're at Snead State, please consider the following information when choosing biology courses:

As of July 16, 2012, BIO 103 is not required as a prerequisite for BIO 201 (Anatomy & Physiology I) or BIO 220 (Microbiology).

 Students are still strongly encouraged to take BIO 103 prior to taking BIO 201, 202, and 220 because:

·      BIO 103 counts under Area III for transfer students.  BIO 201, 202, and 220 do not.

·      Four-year universities still require BIO 103 as a prerequisite.  Students to take BIO 201, 202, or 220 without taking BIO 103 may lose transfer credit.

·      Nursing programs at four-year universities require BIO 103.
