Advising

Advising is recommended, though not required, at the undergraduate level and is available on request. Note, however, that it is the responsibility of the student to ensure that they meet all of the graduation requirements (required courses, departmental and faculty requirements) of the degree program and specialization in which they are registered.

Students are encouraged to review the information provided on this web site for an overview of a number of commonly encountered Biochemistry program concerns, guidelines and recommendations. When you cannot find what you need to know here, please contact one of the Biochemistry undergraduate advisors:
