Academic Advising

All Biology students are required to be advised by their assigned department-level prior to enrolling for each semester.  The Biology Department also encourages students to expand their network of mentors and balance multiple sources of advice from faculty member and field experts, so that they can position themselves to make highly informed choices while at OU, and develop valuable relationships that can help build their future educational and career goals.


Individual Advising

Students may schedule individual 30-minute appointments with their Biology undergraduate advisor, using iAdvise.  A student's advisor is assigned based on the first letter of their last name. Below is the breakdown of which students see which of our Advisors/Counselors.
