Biology Advising

Students are encouraged to make annual appointments with a departmental advisor by emailing or calling (734.487.4242) the Biology Department Office or by clicking on the scheduling links below. A faculty advisor will help you determine which courses to take and in what sequence, to make sure that you satisfy your degree requirements as efficiently as possible. If you have not already seen a biology faculty advisor, you should make an appointment as soon as possible, and schedule yearly appointments thereafter.

During the shutdown caused by COVID-19, faculty with scheduling links beside their names are holding advising appointments via Zoom. To sign up for an appointment, click the scheduling link beside a faculty member's name, then select an appointment slot. (You may be prompted to sign in to your Google account. If so, sign in.) You will receive an automated email inviting you to the appointment. The appointment will also show up in your Google Calendar. The faculty member will add a Zoom link to the appointment. This addition will trigger a second automated email containing the Zoom link. The Zoom link will also be added to the appointment information in Google Calendar. You can access the Zoom link via the email or via your Google Calendar.

Students who need course overrides may fill out our student request for an EMU biology course override form.

Students who need assistance with audits, course substitutions, and other advising needs should email Dr. Mast ([email protected]) or schedule an advising appointment.
