  1. Welcome to the Biology Department Saint Louis University General Information Session The New Advising/Mentoring Program Biology Degrees Offered Degree Programs Choosing the right degree Careers for Biology Majors

  2. Academic Advisingand Mentoringfor Biology Majors Guidelines for Students Fall 2007

  3. Academic Advising & Biology Mentoringfor Second-Year Students – Still Deciding • Attend Biology Academic PlanningSession--all second-year students interested in biology are welcome. • Information sessions will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 10 4:00 – 5:30 p.m. or 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. in MW 142 • Learn about requirements for the biology major, course offerings in biology, research and internship opportunities, and career options for biologists • Meet with your Academic Advisor to plan course schedule and obtain Registration PIN • Register for your spring 2008 courses through Banner (registration for second-year students begins Nov. 19)

  4. Academic Advising & Biology Mentoringfor Sophomores who have Declared a Biology Major • Meet with your Academic Advisor and complete the first part of the Registration Worksheet (bright orange form) • Meet with your Faculty Mentor (Biology Department) to discuss your career goals, interests in biology, and appropriate courses. Complete the second part of the Registration Worksheet with your Faculty Mentor. • Meet with your Academic Advisor to discuss your course schedule for spring 2008. You will receive a registration PIN at this time. • Register for spring 2008 courses in Banner. (Registration for sophomores begins Nov. 19.)
