This information is intended to assist you in receiving biology course credit for courses taken outside of the Division of Biological Sciences, whether at UC San Diego or at another institution.

If you plan to take coursework for your major outside of the Division of Biological Sciences, we recommend you consult with a Biology Advisor prior to course enrollment to determine if this will impact your ability to meet prerequisites, complete the upper-division unit requirement, satisfy the Biology Residency Requirement, or receive degree conferral in a timely manner.

If you will be taking coursework during a Study Abroad program, please refer to the Study Abroad as a Biology Major page for additional guidelines on how to apply coursework to your biology major.
