It is strongly encouraged that students wishing to transfer into this major contact the U of O Biology department for advising.
A brief review of some of the requirements for the Biology major:
INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE (IB) OR ADVANCED PLACEMENT (AP) CREDIT
A score of 5 or more on the IB higher level Biology exam provides 12 credits for the General Biology courses BI 211 Cells, 212 Organisms, 213 Populations. An AP Biology Score of 4 or higher provides eight general education University credits of 100-level Biology (BI 1xxT, BI 1xxT) and 4 credits for the first course in our General Biology sequence (BI 211 Cells). AP credit for Chemistry is granted as CH 221, 222, 223 with scores of 3, 4 or 5. Credit is not awarded for the laboratory so students are required to take the laboratory sequence (CH 227, 228, 229).
- For U of O's Bachelor's Degree Requirements, refer to General Education. For PCC courses that transfer to U of O, refer to the Transfer Equivalencies link.
- If you plan to earn an AAOT degree, all U of O general education requirements will be met by AAOT degree requirements.
PCC endeavors to create accurate transfer guides for students; however, requirements may change without notice. Students are responsible for working with PCC advisors and their transfer institution to ensure that their academic plan will meet requirements and timelines.
