Biology Transfer Program of Study
As a biology major, success in your math and science courses are important. You will need to complete: calculus, chemistry, physics and biology courses. UC and CSU schools require the completion of 60 transferable units that include English 1A, a critical thinking course, and for CSU transfer, an oral communication class.
Completion of all of your general education (GE) may not be mandatory. Working with a counselor is the best way to map out a transfer plan. We highly recommend that you make an appointment with a counselor to develop an education plan that meets your needs.
