Advising for Biology Majors

Students with 60 or more hours

Students majoring in Biology are required to meet with their assigned academic advisor once each academic term to be advised and cleared for class registration.  Advising appointments are made available within the first month of each semester and will continue until the last day of class. Check SAGE.

Drop-in Hours (Fall/Spring)

When classes are in session, Drop-in Hours are available for students with specific questions or concerns. Please note these hours are not for formal advising and are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Hours are subject to change.

Undergraduate Research in Biology

Undergraduates majoring in biology have the opportunity to enhance their learning through direct participation in research and scholarship. At UGA, these opportunities enable undergraduates to participate in ground-breaking research, often as part of a team of graduate students and faculty. In fact, many students can earn academic credit while working under an experienced faculty mentor by taking BIOL 4960R or working directly with the Center for Undergraduate Research Opportunities (CURO). The Biological Sciences Undergraduate Research Fellowship (BSURF) has been established to support undergraduate research opportunities in the Division of Biological Sciences within the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences. The Fellowship provides financial assistance to students who have not had an opportunity to participate in a mentored research experience (paid, volunteer, or for credit) since matriculating to the University of Georgia.
