Academic Programs & Advising


All students who wish to graduate with a degree from the department of biological sciences but have not successfully completed 60 credit hours will be advised by the Augusta University’s Academic Advising Center located in University Hall 262. Additionally if you have not completed Biol 1108 Principle of Biology II and Math 1113 Pre-calculus Mathematics you are classified as Pre-Biology Majors. Once a student has successfully completed the above requirements the student is reclassified as Biology major.

Before a student can register for classes, each student MUST meet with their advisor. All pre-biology and biology majors will receive an email from Dr. Griner listing instructions on how to sign-up for an appointment with his/her advisor. It is the student's responsibility to make the advising appointment and to arrive prepared for the appointment.

Course Requirements

If a student does not successfully complete a biology course after two attempts (i.e., he/she receives a D, F, W, or WF), the student will be limited to specific registration times for any subsequent attempts. Any student meeting these criteria will not be allowed to register for the course until the last day of late registration. Appeals may be made to the Chair of the Department of Biology in hardship cases.
