Biology Proficiency Test
At this time the Biology Proficiency Test has been suspended, you must meet the prerequisites for all biology courses. If you have taken a prerequisite that has expired, an exemption can be considered on a case-by-case basis.
In order to enroll in BIO 1570 (Microbiology of Health and Disease) or BIO 2630 (Human Anatomy and Physiology I), you must have:
- Earned a C or higher in BIO 1511 or BIO 1530 (or equivalent college transfer course)
within the past 5 years.
- Earned 70% on the Biology Proficiency Test
The Biology Proficiency Test is a 60 question, multiple-choice test. We recommend that you spend time reviewing the material before taking the test. (See topics on the back) You are allowed to retake the test one time.
If you do not earn 70% on your second attempt, you must enroll in BIO 1511 or BIO 1530 (see a counselor before enrolling in BIO 1530).
Your Biology Placement score is valid for 5 years.
