A Course of Study is the list of courses you complete towards your major following your specialization requirements. Please see the CWU Online Catalog for co- and pre-requisites for courses in your plan. 

While it is best to use the Course of Study Worksheet each quarter for your planning, your official Course of Study must be approved and signed by you, your Biology Advisor, and the Biological Sciences Department Chair one year prior to graduation.
