Department of Biology Course Repeat Policy
The following guidelines apply to courses offered by the Department of Biology. Students may repeat any biology (BIO) or behavioral neuroscience (BNS) course once without special permission. A course will be considered repeated if the student has previously earned a letter grade in the course, or if the student has previously withdrawn from the course during Withdrawal II or Withdrawal III. If a student wishes to retake a biology or behavioral neuroscience course a third time, written permission must be obtained from the departmental chair before the registrar will allow the student to enroll in that course.
