A new Honors version of BIOL 1107 will be offered once a year, starting in Fall 2014. All Honors lab sections are attached to a single Honors lecture. Students who complete the course with a B- or better will earn 4 Honors credits on their transcripts. Students will no longer take the BIOL 1109 Honors seminar concurrently with BIOL 1107.
Honors credit for BIOL 1108 will still be earned by taking the BIOL 1109 Honors seminar concurrently with any BIOL 1108 section. Students’ transcripts will show 4 non-Honors credits for BIOL 1108 and 1 Honors credit for BIOL 1109. Starting in Fall 2014, students who earn a B- or better in BIOL 1108 and BIOL 1109 will be treated as if they had earned 4 Honors credits toward Honors participation requirements and/or Sophomore Honors. BIOL 1108+1109 may also be used as the 3 additional Honors credits at any level required for graduation as an Honors Scholar, but it will not fulfill the “depth” requirement (3 credits in an Honors graded class).
These changes do not affect students who completed BIOL 1107 + 1109 and/or BIOL 1108 + 1109 prior to Fall 2014. These students will still be treated as if they had earned 5 Honors credits for each.
