Minor Requirements

A student may plan a minor program in biology in consultation with a member of the department staff. Such a program consists of five biology courses, of which only one can be numbered  or lower.

The policies regarding minimum grade requirements established for a major apply to the minor program as well.

A student entering Colgate as a first-year student may apply for transfer credit toward the minor for one course taken at another institution. A student transferring from another institution with junior or senior standing may petition for transfer credit for a second course toward the minor.
