It is in the best long-term interest of the students that their fitness for the biology major be assessed as early as possible. Students that require multiple repetition of basic mathematics, chemistry and core biology courses will be assisted in making the necessary adjustments to continue or in making a transition to a more suitable major. A student will attain cautionary status if upon the completion of the Freshman year, the student has received at least one “D” or “F” grade in either BIOL 0100 BIOL 0120 BIOL 0121 BIOL 0230 BIOL 0231  or a “D” or “F” grade in CHEM 0231  and MATH 0107  whenever taken. Cautionary status will come with instructions on obtaining tutorial and other advisory assistance to aid students in successfully pursuing the requirements for the biology major. The accumulation of four grades of “D” and “F” in any combination of the aforementioned courses and BIOL 0250  and BIOL 0251 , regardless as to whether either was successfully repeated, will result in the forced transition to a different major.
