Undergraduate Advising -- Biology

This page includes instructions for students seeking information about advising in the UNCG Biology Department. This information is only pertinent to the Biology Department and does not apply to any other academic departments on campus.


Advising for undergraduate biology majors -- undergraduate students that have greater than 24 earned credit hours -- during the Spring and Fall semesters is carried out in our Biology Advising Center. Undergraduate majors will receive instructions via email on signing-up for an advising appointment in the advising center several weeks after the beginning of each semester. Each student must make an appointment in the advising center to receive an advising code. The Biology Department DOES NOT give out advising codes without an advising appointment.

Undergraduate biology majors requiring advising during the Summer Sessions need to contact the Biology Department via email:, for an advisor that has summer availability. Please be advised that not every faculty member is available in the summer and the available faculty members will meet with you as their schedule permits.


Undergraduates with less than 24 earned credit hours are advised via the College of Arts & Sciences Advising center. You can contact CASA via email:, or via phone: (336) 334-4361.


Transfer students with less than 24 earned credit hours need to contact the College of Arts & Sciences Advising to schedule an appointment to be advised. Transfer students with greater than 24 earned credit hours will be advised as undergraduate majors. (See above section.)


All new freshmen will be advised at SOAR. See for more information.

Students with any other questions or concerns are welcome to contact the UNCG Biology Department via email: Please be sure to use your valid UNCG email when emailing the department about advising questions or concerns; using a third party email address may cause unforseeable delays in assisting you with your query.
