Transferring from another institution
If you transfer from any other institution of higher education to UNC and you declare biology as your major program of study, you should do the following things:
- Know the courses that transfer to UNC. After being accepted to UNC, the university will review your academic transcripts from other institutions and determine which courses may be accepted for credit at UNC. The list of accepted transfer courses will be sent to you. Be sure to bring this list with you when you meet with your academic adviser or with the biology transfer advisor.
- Meet with your academic advisor. They will assist you with fine-tuning your transferred courses to maximize the fulfillment of UNC and biology degree requirements.
Transferring from another major program at UNC
If you change your major to biology from any other major at UNC, there are special rules that apply to you. For example, some 200-level biology courses may be substituted for upper-division biology courses depending on the grade that you received. You should talk to your academic adviser to see what is possible.
