Special notes:

BIO 301 and 302 – Human Anatomy and Physiology I and II may count for Biology Option credit only for those students pursuing an advanced degree in programs (e.g., Physical Therapy, Physician Assistant) that require this course in the undergraduate training.

BIO 393, 394, 399, 493, and 494 may be used in aggregate to count for no more than ONE Biology Option course unit, although course credits in addition to this can be applied as general electives toward the overall graduation requirement.
