Thanks for your interest in Biology!

The Biology Department has an online system for requesting permission to enroll and join waitlists for our upper level courses.

Details on how to join core course waitlists are outlined here as well.

UPPER LEVEL COURSES: PERMISSION & WAITLISTS

Many upper level biology courses require permission from the instructor to register. To request permission fill out the Request Permission to Enroll Form by MONDAY, APRIL 11. You will be notified of the success of your request prior to the start of registration on April 18. If your request can’t be accommodated, we’ll automatically add your name to the waitlist for your requested course(s).

To join a waitlist for an upper level course that does not require instructor permission to enroll (or if you miss the form deadline for courses that do require permission), first complete your registration; then please contact the instructor directly to be added to the waitlist.

CORE COURSES: PERMISSION & WAITLISTS

To join a waitlist for BIOL 180, BIOL 190, and/or BIOL 200, first complete your registration; then fill out the Core Course Waitlist Form. We’ll be in touch after the first day of Fall semester to let you know the status of your request. This form will close at the end of registration, on APRIL 29.

Please Note: In Fall 2022, BIOL 170 (Ecology & the Environment) will require permission of the instructor. To request permission, fill out the form found on the Environmental Studies Department’s Website. You’ll be notified of the status of your request by the ES Department. If your request can’t be accommodated, your name will be automatically added to the BIOL 170 waitlist. If you miss the form deadline, please contact the instructor directly to be added to this waitlist.
