    Biology 011 Information

  • BIOL 011 Biology Practicum is for students of BIOL 251, 252, and 253. It will be held on the weekends, it is essentially an open, staffed lab where students may come and study lab material and get assistance from an instructor. To support this program, we have students enroll for 1 credit of BIOL 011 Biology Practicum. The grade for BIOL 011 is "S", satisfactory as long as you pass the associated lab course. The specific days and times will be announced by your 25X Lab instructor. Attendance is optional; most students find it very useful and I encourage you to take advantage of it. It is a pretty unique program, most schools with similar classes don't have such an opportunity for students. Please let me know if you have further questions.
