Plant Sciences BS: Freshmen Academic Planners

Be sure to take all of your major requirement courses for a letter grade.

GE - General Education requirement course.  Remember to add your General Education requirements to your plan.

ME - Major Exploration are courses to include in your academic plan to explore other majors/minors you might be interested in.

Prioritize enrollment in BIOE 20C,  math and chemistry courses in your first year to ensure you are qualified to declare your major. Students beginning as frosh must declare their major at the beginning of their sixth quarter, or spring of sophomore year. 

 

In second, third, and fourth year plans only major requirements are listed.  You will add a third course to be full time. For example, this third course can be a GE requirement, a course of general interest, a prerequisite course for graduate or professional school, an undergraduate research course, an internship, or a minor requirement. We strongly discourage students from enrolling in more than two major courses per quarter, regardless of whether they are lower or upper division.
