4-Year Plan

This sample 4-year plan should be used in collaboration with your Molecular and Cell Biology student services coordinator. There is flexibility in course selection and sequencing. Requirements may vary per student depending on AP credit, transfer credit, or placement exams.

When planning, keep in mind that students are strongly encouraged to build in internship, research, volunteer, study abroad experiences, etc. See the Student Resources and Undergraduate Research tabs for more information on these experiences.
