Applying to Your Major/Minor

Biology faculty advisors work closely with students to help identify the most appropriate degree path to meet the student's long-term goals.

Entering the Biology Major or Minor

You may enter the Biology major or minor during your first quarter at SPU. Entrance after your first quarter requires only good academic standing (2.0 or higher SPU cumulative GPA). Consult the Undergraduate Catalog for complete information on how and when to enter and what you must do to complete the program.   

For instructions on how to add or change a major/minor in Banner, please see the Office of the Registrar website.
