The Minor in Biology has been suspended for the 2016 - 2017 academic year because of impaction. No requests to declare the minor will be approved at this time. Students who have already declared a minor will be allowed to complete their course of study.

The minor requires a minimum of 23 units in biology, of which at least one-half must be upper division units.

All courses in the minor must be completed with letter grades (CR/NC is not acceptable).
