AP, IB and GCE Credit in Biology

AP, IB, GCE Credit for Biological Sciences Majors

Biological Sciences majors in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and the College of Arts and Sciences may not use Biology AP, IB or GCE credit to place out of any requirements for the major. Biological Sciences majors may, however, apply earned Biology AP, IB or GCE credit (noted below) toward the 120 credits required for graduation in accordance with the policies of their respective college.

 

AP, IB, GCE Credit for Non-Biological Sciences Majors

Non Biological Sciences majors who choose to take any combination of Introductory Biology Cluster Courses (BioG 1440, BioG 1445, BioG 1500, BioEE 1610, BioMG 1350) may keep their earned Biology AP, IB, GCE credits and apply those credits toward required graduation credits in accordance with the policies of their respective college. Students should check with their major advisor to determine if their department accepts placement out of any major requirements.

Pre-Medical Students

Premedical students are advised to review the medical school prerequisite course recommendations found in The Cornell Health Careers Guide for Pre-applicants at http://www.career.cornell.edu/resources/additional-ccs-guides.cfm
