Major and Degree Requirements:
All Life Science Core Curriculum courses must be passed with a letter grade of C- or better and must be completed with an overall GPA of 2.00 (C) or better. If you receive a grade of D or F in two (2) core curriculum courses, either in separate courses or in repetitions of the same course, you are subject to dismissal from the major.
For the upper division (UD) major requirements, you must pass each course with a letter grade of D- or better. However, in order to graduate, you are required to maintain a global GPA (UD major requirements) of 2.00 or better.
A maximum of four (4) units of graduate work may be applied on the major, BUT only if approved by the department.
A maximum of four (4) units of EE BIOL 199 OR eight (8) units of EE BIOL 198A & 198B may be applied to the major. Credit for 199 courses from other departments may not be applied.
Each course applied toward the UD major requirements must have a minimum of four (4) units. Courses with fewer than four units may be combined to equal one (1) course equivalent, IF they are applicable to the major (e.g., EE BIOL 180, EE BIOL 188). Thus, two (2) courses worth 2 units each (for a total of 4 units) could equal one course requirement on the major. A maximum of one (1) course on the major is allowed in cases where two 2-unit courses are combined to equal one course equivalent. A six-unit course counts as one course on the requirement for the major, e.g., EE BIOL C119 (4 units) and C119L (2 units), which must be taken together, count as one course. Only ONE of EE BIOL 191 (4 units) can be applied on the major.
All courses to be applied on the major must be taken for a letter grade. This includes all courses in the Life Science Core Curriculum and all UD major courses.
The College requires a total of 60 upper division units for graduation. Thus, you may be required to take additional UD courses (either within or outside of the major) to meet this requirement.
