Biology Transfer Equivalency Request Form

  1. Complete this request form in its entirety; list the course numbers for which you are seeking equivalency in the comments section along with any special requests and/or explanations. One form may be used to evaluate multiple courses. 
  2. Attach an accurately labeled (e.g. syllabus_BIOL205.pdf) syllabus for each biology course that includes:
    • The course textbook title and author
    • A detailed list of course topics (and lab topics if applicable)
    • Any required prerequisites
  3. If transfer equivalency is determined, you will be notified via email and the department will make a request to the University Registrar on your behalf to have your TER updated. Please allow 1-2 weeks to process your request. The process may take longer during busy periods (i.e. registration).
Academic Calendar Type
Provide a brief explanation of the courses you are seeking equivalency for (i.e. BIOL 204, 205, 206) and any additional information that may be relevant.
