Registration Information For Summer 2018

There is no major restriction on 300-400 level BIOS courses in Summer semesters. As long as a student has the prerequisite to take the course, they should be able to register for SU18 courses in the BIOS department.

If you receive a Test Score/Prerequisite error, it is likely due to one of the following reasons:

  1. You are a non-degree seeking graduate student.
  2. You are an undergraduate student who has not sent final transcripts for a prerequisite course.

In the event that one of the above scenarios applies to you, please use your UIC email address to provide a screenshot or unofficial transcript of your grade in the required prerequisite course, along with your name, UIN, course number to biosciadvising@uic.edu starting Monday, April 2, 2018. The issuance of an override does not affect the time listed on the student’s Time Ticket.

REGISTRATION INFORMATION FOR fall 2018

Registering for Major-Restricted Courses (excluding BIOS 350, 351, and 352)
Students in the following majors may register for 300-400 level BIOS courses without overrides: Biochemistry, Biological Sciences, Bioengineering, Chemistry, Earth and Environmental Sciences, Neuroscience, and Physics. All other students, including science minors, IHS majors, and students who have recently declared any of the above listed majors, are restricted from registering for all 300-400 level BIOS courses.

Students who wish to register for 300-400 level BIOS courses (except for BIOS 350, 351, and 352 – see below) will need departmental approval. Students may request approval to register for these courses beginning on April 19, 2018, which is the start of Continuing Registration. Students should not contact that Department of Biological Sciences prior to this date, as their requests will go unanswered. To request an override, students should email biosciadvising@uic.edu from their UIC email account with their name, UIN, and the course for which they need approval. Students will be notified of their approval within 2 business days.

**Non-degree seeking graduate students may request approval for any 300-400 level BIOS course once Continuing Registration begins on Thursday, April 19, 2018. No approvals will be given prior to this date.**

**Important Co- and Pre-Requisite Information**

If a student plans to take the required Chemistry co-rerequisite course (CHEM 130 or CHEM 232) for BIOS 350 at another institution during the Summer 2018 or Fall 2018 semester, the student will need to provide proof that they are registered for the equivalent course at the other institution in order to receive approval to register for BIOS 350/351. Students may email a copy of their registration report to biosciadvising@uic.edu with the subject “BIOS 350/351 override request prerequisite confirmation” beginning on April 2, 2018.

Students planning to take CHEM 130 or 232 at UIC during the Summer 2018 or Fall 2018 semesters will need to register for the course prior to receiving approval to register for BIOS 350/351. Students will be denied approval to register without proof of registration at UIC or another institution.

Similarly, if a student has already earned credit in or is in-progress on completing any co- or pre-requisite course for BIOS 350/351 in a semester prior to Fall 2018, they can send a screen shot or unofficial transcript showing their grade or registration in the prerequisite course(s) to biosciadvising@uic.edu with the subject “BIOS 350/351 override request prerequisite confirmation” beginning on April 2, 2018. All final transcripts should be sent to the Office of Admissions and Registrar.
