Admission for Prospective Freshmen and Transfer Students

If you want to major in Biological Sciences at Cornell, you would apply to either the College of Arts and Sciences or the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. Since courses, concentrations, research opportunities, major advising services, and requirements for the biological sciences major are the same in both colleges, we advise you to make your college choice according to your secondary interests. It’s the non-biology course options and requirements that vary from college to college.  So spend some time visiting both college web sites to learn more about their respective academic offerings beyond Biology.
