Transferable Courses from VCCS:


BIOLOGY

To receive transfer credit for Biology 205 and above, students must first complete Biology 101 and 102 successfully and in sequence. Also, General Chemistry is required as a prerequisite for some courses to be counted in the Biology major (please discuss with Department Chair after admissions to UMW.) Any courses taken without ALL of the required prerequisites may transfer as general elective and not as credit in the Biology major.

^ NOTE: BIO-101 MUST be completed before BIO-102. BIO-102 will not transfer for credit if taken out of sequence.

+ NOTE: If both 231 and 232 are taken, then credit for BIOL 384 & 385 may be given. If only 231 or 232 is taken, elective credit will be given; however, taking UMW’s BIOL 384 or 385 will delete this elective credit.

**NOTE: Must have already completed the prerequisite course(s) required by UMW to receive equivalent credit.
