Academic Advising


Undergraduate Biology Advisors at Stony Brook University provide major advising to approximately 2,000 Biology Majors and Minors, and an additional 500 Biochemistry majors. Most Biology and Biochemistry advising includes semester scheduling. We also help with issues such as transfer evaluations, research opportunities, and degree clearance .

In general, we recommend that when Biology Majors and Minors need help with semester scheduling, they should first see their Major/Minor Advisors for core course requirements and then see an Academic Advisor in  Academic and Transfer Advising Services.



For advising information and questions, please see a Biology Advisor:

      Students who wish to see a Biology Advisor for help with semester scheduling should do so in plenty of time (i.e., about 1-2 months) before an upcoming registration period. This is particularly important for Biology Majors and Minors going into the first or second semester of their Senior Year. It is not unusual for Biology Majors to see a Biology Advisor every semester, especially from their Sophomore Year.   Make an appointment with a Biology Advisor
