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.

Please do not make an individual Appointment with a Biology Advisor to obtain information on the pending Biology BA degree program. Instead, you should attend one of the information sessions that will be mandatory for all students that are interested in declaring this major.  Note, it will not be possible to make any changes in major declaration until  Monday April 2nd , and it will not be possible to declare the BIO BA until it is officially approved by the Federal Government.

BIO BA Info Sessions
Friday (3/23)              1:00-2:00 PM
Monday (3/26)          1:30-2:30 PM
Thursday (3/29)      1:30-2:30 PM
   Friday (3/30)              12:00-1:00 PM


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

For registration issues and inquiries, please contact Lynette Giordano:

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.
