Upon declaring the major, all Molecular Biology students are assigned to an advising team composed of a Faculty Advisor and the Student Services Coordinator.

Your Faculty Advisor

Your Faculty Advisor provides guidance specific to the molecular biology discipline through discussions about undergraduate experiences (i.e. internships, research, volunteering, etc.) that will help prepare you for graduate work or a career after graduation.

You can make an appointment with your Faculty Advisor via email.

Your Student Services Coordinator

Your Student Services Coordinator provides guidance specific to the molecular biology discipline but also provides developmental advising throughout your undergraduate career. Your Student Services Coordinator will help with course selection, registration, DARS, L&S degree and major requirements, and tracking progress towards graduation, as well as connecting you to important resources across campus.  Schedule an appointment here.

Declared students are strongly encouraged to meet with their Faculty Advisors and Student Services Coordinator regularly throughout the duration of their undergraduate experience.
