Brookdale Community College Footnotes:
1 – BIOL 208 requires a prerequisite of MATH 131 in addition to BIOL 102. Prerequisites or corequisites: MATH 151 or MAT. 152
2 – One course is recommended from the Cultural & Global Awareness knowledge area.
The Transfer Advising Guide is a recommended plan of study. Additional courses are transferrable as outlined on NJ Transfer for this major with the approval of a Rider University Advisor.
A Students must earn a Grade of C or better in BIO-115, BIO-116, BIO-117 to meet the major requirements and before enrolling in upper-level courses for which these courses are pre-requisites.
B 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 the student has previously Withdrawal II or Withdrawal III. If a student wishes to retake a biology or behavioral science course a third time, written permission must be obtained from the departmental chair before the registrar will tallow the student to enroll in that course.
Ʊ – Students have a number of options to fulfill this requirement; courses will be evaluated on an individual basis.
For transfer credit Brookdale students must have a grade of “C” or higher in all courses.
Brookdale students interested in the College of Continuing Study (CCS) at Rider should contact that division directly.
Requirements are subject to change. This Advising Guide is best used in consultation with an advisor.
