Your advisor is here to guide you through the Biology major. We can address your questions and concerns, provide advice, help you create a four-year degree plan that meets your major and professional goals, and connect you to resources. It is important to remember that advising is about the process, and some questions do not have a quick and easy answer. Your advisor will challenge you to self-reflect, to critically think about your goals and strategies, and to develop decision-making skills. Please see our Biology Major Academic Advising Syllabus. For more information about what to expect during your advising appointment, visit UW Undergraduate Advising.

Faculty Advisors: The Biology Major has a network of over 50 faculty advisors on campus to advise students within the Biology Major. Faculty Advisors are excellent resources for research guidance, graduate school preparation, and navigating the major requirements. Students may be assigned a faculty advisor upon major declaration. Once matched, contact the faculty advisor directly for an appointment.
