Undergraduate Major Requirements
Students are required to fulfill the requirements of their chosen degree as listed in the Utah State University General Catalog and the Major Requirement Sheet for the degree at the time of entry into the degree program. If the degree requirements are later changed, students may choose to move to newer degree requirements.
The following links provide access to the 2012-2013 Major Requirement Sheets for the Biology Department's undergraduate degrees:
Application for Graduation
Go to the Registrar's Office in the Taggart Student Center, TSC 246, and ask for your graduation packet to be prepared or apply on-line from the Registrar's web site. Tell them your major, any emphasis within the major (for example Biology major with Environmental or Cellular/Molecular emphasis or Public Health major with Environmental Health emphasis) and any minors you expect to earn. Pick up your packet when it is ready.
Prepare a list of the courses you will take each semester prior to graduation (including the current semester). Only list courses that you need to meet graduation requirements; we will transcribe this information onto the graduation form. Bring your graduation packet and this list of courses to the Biology Advising Center (BNR 101) for department (major) processing.
Pick up your signed packet and take it to your minor department(s) for the appropriate signatures.
Your next stop is the College of Science (ESLC 245) where they will make sure that you have met University Studies (general education), College of Science, and University requirements and secure the Dean’s signature.
Finally, take your graduation packet to the Registrar ’s Office in the Taggart Student Center to pay graduation fees.
NOTE: Changes and Supplemental Forms. If you change your plan of study from what was listed on the graduation form, you must file a supplemental form describing those changes or your application will be rejected. These are available at the Graduation Desk, the College of Science, and the Biology Advising Center. They must be signed by the Biology Department's Director of Undergraduate Studies and the Associate Dean of the College of Science who will verify that you still meet graduation requirements after the changes.
